Event description
This year’s FOLAR symposium deals with the landscape design, planning and management of state financed industry, both post-war and today

About this Event

State owned industries have had an enormous impact on the UK's landscape and on UK infrastructure, but the influence of these businesses and their landscape staff has often gone unnoticed and uncelebrated - and there is much to laud and many lessons to learn.

The event will be chaired by Jane Findlay, President Elect Landscape Institute and speakers will include

Dr Luca Csepely-Knorr & Dr Richard Brook speaking on The Landscapes of Post-War Infrastructure: Culture, Amenity, Heritage and Industry project

Dr Alan Powers on the role of post-war nationalised industries, the commanding heights of the economy, and the work of landscape architects

Dr Luca Csepely-Knorr (Manchester Metropolitan University), on Electric landscapes: the work of the CEGB

Richard Flenley (formerly LUC) on Landscape of Coal: deep mining and the Opencast Executive,

Hal Moggridge (Colvin and Moggridge) on Reservoirs

Helen Neve (Land Management Services) on British Gas - Landscape and Environmental Planning for the Natural Gas Network

Christoph Brintrup (Head of Landscape, HS2) on High Speed 2 - Landscape of new industry :

The symposium will offer full opportunity for discussion with questions after each talk and a general conversation with the speakers at the end of the day.

Doors open at 10 am.
