The first Stand 47 talk

Our first round of Stand 47 Talks took place today, attracting a healthy attendance from colleagues and professionals in the industry. We were pleased that just over 40 people attended the 90 minute session at Monaghan’s Deli to hear Hugh Fraser, Gavin Rooke, Evan Lockhart-Barker and Prospero Bailey deliver talks regarding contemporary home design and in particular, the conceptual ideas and exploratory vision driving the Stand 47 project. Preliminary designs of the home were presented and day finished with an afternoon visit to the site.
