Language of Buildings - An Evening with Matthew Rice
Tuesday 16th October 19:00 - 20:00 at Oxford
We are teaming up with IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival to bring you a week of incredible events. From the 15th-22nd of October we will be holding a variety of talks and discussions where scientific research is explored, challenged, celebrated and enjoyed.
Matthew Rice discusses the grammar and vocabulary of British buildings, explaining the evolution of styles from Norman castles to Norman Foster. He will help you recognise, understand and date any British building. Fluent in the world of volutes, hood moulds, lobed architraves and bucrania, you will be able to leave a cathedral or country house with as much to talk about as a film or play.
