Building on the success of our first regional events in Birmingham and Manchester, during 2018, this year we’re delighted to deliver our first ever Brick Works evening in Cambridge.


Hosted by the University of Cambridge, we will hear first from one of the world’s leading authorities on the history of clay brick, Dr James W.P. Campbell, Reader in Architecture and Construction History, Queens’ College (Fellow) and Director of Studies both for Queens’ and Trinity. James will draw on the depth of knowledge that informed his first book, Brick a World History, which was celebrated Guardian Book of the Week when published in 2003.


The evening will then continue through case-studies, presented by leading practitioners exploring the material’s contemporary use in British architecture. Further details of speakers and projects will be announced in due course.
