Architectural exhibition on country houses

Staff and students are invited to the Royal Institute of British Architects’ New English country house exhibition, on display in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering between Monday 6 and Friday 10 March (6 East 2.7).

The country house is one of Britain's most significant architectural and landscape legacies. A number of new country residences have been designed and approved in recent years in styles varying from neo-classical to cutting-edge contemporary.

The exhibition includes 15 recent schemes for country houses and estates in England. A mixture of modern and traditional designs, some have been completed and some are currently being built. The exhibition includes detailed architectural and landscape drawings.

The exhibition will be moved down to the Holburne where will be displayed until 26 March in conjunction with a sell-out symposium on The future of the country house and estate in context.

Also at the Holburne is the Painting the West Country house and garden exhibition. The exhibition includes paintings of many of the great houses and estates, from the 17 century to the present day. The exhibition runs until the 17 April and admission is free to University of staff and students.
