Decoding architectural decoration in Akroydon and Saltaire

26th Oct, 2021
Online event

Sheila Binns will explore architectural decoration by delving into the model villages of Saltaire and Akroydon. These model villages in West Yorkshire are both full of architectural decoration, which is far more than simply attractive embellishment. It carries messages that were of great importance to their respective patrons. This talk unravels the messages in these communities and provides a new understanding of architectural decoration. It aims to leave the audience to ponder the meaning of the decoration of their own favourite buildings.
