James will be speaking later this month as part of an evening talk bringing to life the significance of the North East regions Post-War modernism, exploring the importance of the people, politics and buildings (built and unbuilt) that define the region. The talk will cover formation and development of the online archive Something Concrete and Modern as well as discussing the implications of this period on the current and future state of architecture in the region.
The event takes place on the 17th March 2016 from 6.30pm and has been organised by The Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and the North East Civic Trust. It will take place in the Fine Art Lecture Theatre at Newcastle University within the King Edward II Building.
