RIBA Exeter is hosting an online summer lecture with guest speaker Tom Gibson of Haworth Tompkins, project architect of the Bristol Old Vic which won three RIBA awards in 2019.

At a time where everyone is keen to interact and re-engage in our public space, as we slowly come out of lockdown, the lecture will be a focus on:Sustainable place making, civic space and the role of historic buildings.

The lecture will review these topics and look closely at the overlaps between the Bristol Old Vic and Battersea Arts Centre, London. The lecture will aim to promote insight and prompt a discussion about new design models for recovery as we see restrictions eased and work towards sustainable architectural practice post-COVID-19.
