Event Details

Due to popular demand, Timothy Mowl will repeat his controversial and lavishly illustrated lecture on architectural schemes for Bath that were never realised, the subject of his recently published, co-authored book. It will take in all those missed opportunities and ways not followed – a vast double crescent in Bathwick by Robert Adam; a gigantic Reform Column for Laura Place that pre-dated Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square by ten years; a 1916 civic centre on Orange Grove; Abercrombie and Buchanan’s failed tunnel schemes; the infamous Sack of Bath and its consequences; Sir James Dyson’s glittering steel and glass School of Design Innovation for the Stothert & Pitt Works. The lecture will be a clarion call to Bath’s architects, planning officers and residents to demand better design for the city.

Unbuilt Bath by Timothy Mowl & Julian Orbach is not on sale in bookshops but can be ordered by emailing unbuiltbath@gmail.com and will be available to purchase on the night (cash or cheque only, please).
