About the event
A designer of boundless creativity, Douglas' buildings are a key part of the architectural landscape of Chester and Cheshire, woven into the city streets and scattered across country parks and winding lanes. This talk will explore the social and political influences on his work, his distinctive architectural style, as well as his approach to restoring Chester's beloved Rows. A pioneer of vernacular architecture, with buildings that were designed to celebrate and compliment the Medieval, Tudor and Jacobean buildings that inspired him, Douglas' use of local influences and materials was ahead of its time and continues to inspire architects today.
Tickets are free but do need to be booked in advance. The Grosvenor Museum Lecture Theatre is on the ground floor and accessible by lift at the entrance. There is a ramp up to the toilets.
Lecture approximately one and a half hours. Doors open at 7pm.
