Library Talk – Movements in Isle of Wight Architecture (Part 2) 1930-2018


Event Details

Form, Function and Design by Mark Earp

The title sounds heavy but last year’s talk by Mark was fascinating and entertaining.  I know everyone who came last year to Part 1 will be eager to book for Part 2!  Mark shows several pictures of properties on the Island that display features of the period.

The talk is the second in the architectural series of 3 and discusses the post-war development on the Island and the radical changes that took place in design, function and materials. We look at the aspirations of the post-war I.W community and the resulting structures that we see every day as we travel around the Island.

Talk begins 10.30 a.m.  Cost: £5 (to include coffee and biscuits)

Payment on the day but please ring Allison Rogers on 01983 616634 to book your place, email: allisonr@friendsofosborne.org or complete the online Booking Form below.

The room in which the talks are given holds a maximum of 20 people so please make sure you book as we cannot guarantee there will be a space if you just turn up on the day.

The sitting room and library are open every Thursday from 10.00 to 12.00.
