The annual James Sutherland History Lecture covers historical topics related to structural engineering. The 2020 lecture will be given by Steven Brindle, Senior Properties Historian for the new English Heritage Trust.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception at Institution HQ from 19:15 – 20:15. Tickets are free but must be booked in advance; spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Steven has worked for English Heritage in a variety of roles for over 30 years, and is author of several books including the forthcoming "Architecture in Britain and Ireland: 1530-1830". This year's lecture arises from work on this book, which will take a different view of the relationships between architecture, construction and engineering.
