Events & Announcements

This year's HGS Trust Members' Winter Lecture will be held at the Henrietta Barnett School on Monday 13 December starting at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

"George Cadbury and Bournville Village Trust"

A talk by Duncan Cadbury, former Chair and Trustee of the Bournville Village Trust.

The first section of this illustrated talk will focus on George Cadbury’s early years, his family, where he lived and his introduction to the chocolate business.

Duncan will then talk about some of George’s activities beyond making chocolate – as philanthropist rather than businessman and as founder of the Bournville Village Trust in 1900.

In the main part of the presentation Duncan will outline the early years of Bournville through to the present time, showing how George’s legacy vision and values live on.

This is a Members' event. Anyone living in Hampstead Garden Suburb can become a Member free of charge. Application forms are online here, and Membership lasts three years. If you'd like to check your Membership status, email us: mail@hgstrust.org

2016 HGS Trust Members' Winter Lecture:

From the Garden City to the machine à habiter (and back again): the case of Le Corbusier

Tuesday 6 December 2016

The Henrietta Barnett School - main hall

The Trust's life president Dr Mervyn Miller was struck many years ago by the way in which Le Corbusier had studied illustrations of Hampstead Garden Suburb in a German architectural periodical. Miller notes the 1917 Garden Suburb of St Nicholas d'Aliermont outside Dieppe which featured high roofed semi-detached cottages which "would not have been out of place in Letchworth or Hampstead Garden Suburb."

Miller visited Le Corbusier's Garden Suburb at Pessac, outside Bordeaux (pictured, above) in 1990 and again this year. Miller says it was "the first modernist development of its type to be built, with two and three storey houses designed to group into traditional streetscapes."

Join us for our Member's Winter Lecture in which Dr Miller will draw unexpected parallels between the modernist designs of Le Corbusier and our own Garden Suburb.

All Trust Members welcome / Refreshments will be provided / Doors at 7.30pm for an 8pm start
