‘Protecting and Preserving our Heritage’

Our webinar on 28 October featured Conservation Architect and Barts Heritage trustee Liz Smith in conversation with Robert Treharne Jones.

Liz is Head of Architecture and Regional Partner at Purcell, a practice of Architects, Masterplanners and Heritage Consultants renowned for award-winning heritage conservation projects.

Liz’s passion lies in progressive conservation, approaching historic buildings with new and creative design concepts. Liz believes designs can be more creative within the specific constraints and rich context of historic environments. Liz has delivered major projects at the National Maritime Museum, Kew Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral. Liz also features as the conservation architect in Channel 4‘s TV series Phil Spencer’s Stately Homes.

Liz explored the current themes and issues around the protection of our built heritage, and examined the opportunities offered by the proposed restoration project to the Grade I listed buildings at Barts.

A recording of this, and all our other webinars, is available on our YouTube channel.
