Arne Jacobsen conference in Oxford - 27 August 2022


On 27 August, St Catherine’s College will be hosting a one-day conference in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the College’s opening. The conference will look at Arne Jacobsen’s work at St Catherine’s both in its 1960s context and from the present-day perspective of both the UK and Denmark.

Central to the day’s talks will be an opportunity to hear from the members of Arne Jacobsen’s studio about their working relationship with the architect and their role in the design and construction of the College.

The event also provides a platform for launching two projects of great importance to the College and those who have an interest in its history:
During the course of this year, the College Archives are overseeing the digitisation of Arne Jacobsen’s drawings and plans of St Catherine’s. This is the first stage of a longer-term project to digitise all the drawings and plans held in the College’s physical archives. The aim is to provide an online resource for architectural researchers, students and practitioners.

This year also sees the start of research and writing on the part of René Kural of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, of a book about St Catherine’s College.
