The lecture will focus on the work of creative conservation architects in unlocking the potential of historic buildings and allowing them to remain relevant in the 21st century.  A review of Insall’s recent work at Grade 1 Rochdale Town Hall will show how analysis of the issues, understanding of significance, and identifying opportunities for change can inform appropriate contemporary design interventions and revitalise an iconic 19th century civic building for the community.


Simon trained at the Liverpool School of Architecture and is a Director and Architect at Donald Insall Associates, and serves on the Board of Trustees of the AABC Register (Architects Accredited in Building Conservation).  His passion for the historic environment is reflected in the projects he has successfully delivered since he joined Insall in 2000. He has helped bring several important historic buildings back to life through restoration and re-use, finding the most sustainable and financially viable solutions.
