An exhibition stand about Sir George Oatley to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth in 1863. This is going to be placed in various Oatley-designed buildings owned by the University of Bristol. It is seen here in the Entrance Hall of the Wills Memorial Building.











In 2009 Sarah curated ‘The University of Bristol’s Buildings: Past, Present and Future’, as part of the University’s centenary celebrations. This was held at the Architecture Centre, Bristol, from 1 July-31 August 2009. The exhibition included 27 exhibition panels, architectural models, and digitised archive films.
