Melbourne School of Design presents an evening with Tom Bloxham
Tue 10 Nov 2015, 6.15pm
Spend this Tuesday evening with Tom Bloxham, founder of award-winning United Kingdom urban regeneration company Urban Splash. With just a ‘wholehearted belief in cities’ to guide them, Tom and founding partner Jonathan Falkingham began their business by filling empty buildings in the English cities of Liverpool and Manchester. Their work—which includes the revitalisation of Sheffield’s iconic Brutalist complex Park Hill—has invariably been described as groundbreaking, innovative and masterful.
Join us as Melbourne School of Design hosts Tom in an evening of rumination about urban regeneration. Sit back under AL_A’s MPavilion and listen as Tom discusses the principles that guide Urban Splash’s designs, and how they work to combine the history of a building with a new function in the present.
