Friday 17th November: Georgian Arcadia
The Georgian gentleman’s estate was characteristically embellished by a great diversity of structures all designed to add to the aesthetic appreciation of the landscape.  Roger White is a leading authority on Georgian landscape architecture, whose interest in these buildings was first piqued some fifty years ago and recently culminated in publication of his book Georgian Arcadia, Architecture for the Park and Garden which examines the subject from the sublime to the bizarre. In the talk he will explore the diversity and innovation of the buildings, their origins and development as well as their functional and cultural significance.
