Monday 5 November
25 years of Urban Splash
An evening with Tom Bloxham MBE,
Chairman, Urban Splash
Lecture Theatre BZ403
Urban Splash as a private company has helped change the face of post-industrial space in urban England. Tom’s talk will explore the story of Urban Splash as they celebrate their first 25 years through a feast of “before and after” images. Of how from a standing start, Urban Splash has created over £1 billion worth of regeneration developments across UK regions.
He will talk about both restoring historic buildings and also using the best in contemporary architects. Working with large practices like Foster & Partners and Will Alsop, alongside smaller regional and interesting younger practices like FAT, ShedKM, Glen Howells, Simpson Haugh, Hawkins Brown, David Morley, SixTwo and many others.
This will be followed by a Q&A session where all views and debate are encouraged.
Bloxham’s work, in his role as the founder of Urban Splash, has been one of the key factors in helping to spur the renaissance of some of Britain’s cities, from Manchester to Plymouth.
