Venue

The conference will take place in the new John Henry Brookes Building (JHBB) and School of Architecture on Oxford Brookes University’s Headington campus in Oxford, UK. The JHBB won the RIBA South Building of the Year and Sustainability awards in 2014.

Oxford Brookes University’s Headington campus is very well connected with two bus companies running 24 hour and frequent services from the campus to London and its associated airports and train / bus / underground stations. Oxford also has two train stations connecting to London, Birmingham and the rest of the UK.

Oxford is an attractive conference location for local and international architectural academic visitors. It has a wealth of buildings of great historical and contemporary architectural significance. In addition to its Medieval, Classical, English Baroque and Neo-Gothic masterpieces, more recent buildings of architectural significance include Arne Jacobsen’s St Catherine’s College, Zaha Hadid’s Investcorp Building, Niall McLaughlin’s Bishop Edward King Chapel and Herzon and de Meruron’s Blavatvik School of Government.

Delegates may wish to visit the Paul Oliver Vernacular Library Collection held in the Oxford Brookes University Library and also Oxford University’s Bodleian Library.
