ARCHITECTURE CLUB, FROME is a collaborative project initiated by Pippa Goldfinger, NVB / Rook Lane and RIBA South West.  The project will bring architects, architectural writers, engineers and planners to Frome in order to stimulate a wide-reaching debate – for both the public and professionals alike –  on the politics, aesthetics and meaning of the built environment.
