Just back from lecturing at the Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies in York . Great bunch of lively students from India, the US and Europe as well as the UK, many clearly passionate about C20 architecture. And as always it was a great pleasure to be in the King’s Manor. This building deserves to be better known as a great example of a bold C20 intervention to a medieval structure. The concrete elements by Fielden and Mawson (1963-64) have weathered well and have a patina which sits well in a building that dates right back to the fifteenth century and is listed grade I . Bernard Feilden taught at the Institute I’ve just looked up his obituary here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2008/nov/21/obituary-architecture-conservation-bernard-feilden —great snowdrops at Kings Manor too.
