The Centre of Alternative Technology (CAT) was founded in 1973 in an abandoned quarry in Wales, and has developed from an experimental residential community and visitor centre to an educational leader in renewable energy, sustainable food and green building.
Long standing CAT member John Urry will share insights into CAT’s origins and development over time and Architect and CAT Senior Lecturer Tim Coleridge will talk about current projects and research.
Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain
SAHGB brings together all those with an interest in the history of the built environment – academics, architects, heritage experts and the wider public. We believe that appreciation of architectural history plays a vital role in understanding our culture, past and present. With the help of our members, we publish new research, organise a range of events, provide educational opportunities and advance the understanding of the built histories of all periods and places, in Britain and beyond.
