The Cornish Buildings Group Conference 2019 What is unique about Cornish buildings?

> See details of Celebrating Pevsner – New research on Cornish architecture, edited by Paul Holden

The Cornish Buildings Group Conference 2019

What is unique about Cornish buildings?

Friday 22 and Saturday 23 March 2019
Cornwall
Tickets available from September


The Cornish Buildings Group in association with Historic England will host a two-day conference in March 2019 to celebrate 50 years of the Cornish Buildings Group.

Building on the success of the 2015 and 2017 conferences, the Group invites new and challenging paper submissions to explore and discuss the conference question: What is unique about Cornish buildings?

Paul Holden, Chairman of the Cornish Buildings Group said 'Our theme will unite aspects of Cornish architectural design with distinctiveness and exclusivity so we welcome contributions from any area or discipline relative to the past, present and future of buildings in Cornwall and how they impact and affect the natural environment. We encourage papers that embrace research looking at Cornish distinctiveness in the widest possible sense'.

Since 1969 the aims of the Cornish Buildings Group have been to stimulate interest, appreciation and knowledge of good building in Cornwall, and to encourage the erection, protection, repair and recording of such buildings. Furthermore, the Group encourages the protection and repair of historic buildings whether these are listed buildings or simply good examples of traditional building. Mr Holden added 'For fifty years we have encouraged good architecture and championed a high standard of building throughout the county. We hope that our generation may leave behind it buildings which will be looked back on with that same pleasure and enjoyment that we experience when we look at the architecture of past ages'.

Some of the themes the conference will explore include Cornwall’s distinctive architectural style, indigenous building types and buildings stones; houses, churches, chapels and meeting houses, vernacular, agricultural, commercial and industrial buildings; follies, garden structures & coastal dwellings; What constitutes good distinctive design in town and streetscapes; heritage at risk and place-making.
