You are invited to the: Art & Design School Architectures Summit

Wednesday 4 July 2018

FREE Event kindly sponsored by Willmott Dixon

Work is well underway at Bath Spa University’s new art and design campus on Locksbrook Road to convert the Grade II listed former Herman Miller furniture factory designed by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw in the 1970s. As we think about creating an iconic new art school space, we have brought together a distinguished panel of architects, contractors, educators and students to reflect on best practice in art and design school architecture and its impact.
