Pevsner and the Oxford Colleges
THE OXFORDSHIRE BUILDINGS RECORD LECTURE
|Lecturer: Simon Bradley|
|Date: November 28th 2017|
|Time: 5.30pm – 6.30pm|
|Place: Rewley House|
Nikolaus Pevsner's account of Oxford and its colleges in The Buildings of England reflects many of his wider interests, from the Picturesque Movement to the progress of Modernist architecture in England. Written while great refacing of University buildings was still in progress, the college descriptions also raise questions of authenticity and transmission of historic details that challenge architectural historians to this day.
Dr Simon Bradley is joint editor of the Pevsner Architectural Guides published by Yale University Press London. He is author or co-author of four books in the revised Buildings of England series, including Cambridgeshire (2014). His current project is the revision of Oxford, for the forthcoming volume Oxfordshire: Oxford and the South East.
The Society's speaker meetings and committee meetings are held in Rewley House, Oxford (marked R).
