This year all staff from Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios four UK offices (London, Bath, Manchester and Belfast) congregated for the annual New Year event in Oxford. A weekend of design talks, building tours and socialising took place at the Grade 1 Listed buildings of St Catherine’s College Oxford University, designed by the acclaimed Danish architect Arne Jacobsen.
The symposium took the form of a day of short talks by FCBStudios Partners about their design aspirations and inspirations, leading to lively discussion and questions from the practice, and presentations from guest speakers including Dr Barrie Juniper, Alan Berman, David Kohn and Niall McLaughlin.
The weekend also included a morning of building tours around the 20th Century University colleges guided by friends from the C20 Society. Proceedings were rounded off with a 1960s themed evening of dinner and dancing at St Catherine’s College.
