Vitruvius goes international

Vitruvius Heritage went international in March with a full week’s attendance at MIPIM 2023.  Executive Director, Jason Clemons had a fully booked diary with lunches and receptions hosted by Landmark Chambers, 39 Essex Chambers and a wide and varied set of new colleagues and acquaintances that the company is looking forward to working with. The sun was shining and the amazing Cote d'Azur and exceptionally friendly environment of MIPIM 2023 had the magical effect of making the long days of trying to get to see everyone and networking so very easy.

An evening second to none

The spectacular launch of Vitruvius Heritage took place in the appropriately significant and historic surroundings of the Merchant Taylors’ Hall, Threadneedle Street in London on 4th March 2023. Among the guests attending the impressive black tie event were a number of high profile professionals, including some of the country’s leading barristers who are involved in all aspects of planning, and heritage planning in particular.


Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a champagne and canapé reception in the grand Parlour Room overlooking the spectacular and historic courtyard, followed by dinner in the magnificently elegant Great Hall. Entertainment enjoyed throughout the evening included breath-taking magic from an amazingly clever magician and the very talented One Orchestra band, with lead vocalist Michael Amadi.


Proving to be the perfect introduction for the Company, in an almost incomparable location, the event was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.

Jason Clemons becomes Fellow of Royal Society of Arts

Vitruvius Heritage is proud to announce that Executive Director Jason Clemons has become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. The RSA was born on 22 March 1754, when eleven men met in Rawthmells coffeehouse in Covent Garden and declared themselves to be the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

 

The RSA has always been more than just an organisation encouraging art in our lives. In the 1920s the RSA became the focal point for a social movement to preserve old cottages. It was responsible for the preservation of almost the entire village of West Wycombe and administered the Countryside in 1970 conferences between 1963 and 1970. This played an important role in the emergence of the modern concept of environmentalism. The RSA has also been an innovator in applying design to industry, creating the designation of Royal Designers for Industry and awarding the Student Design Awards. 

A current initiative of the RSA is ‘Design for Life’: to work to give people the confidence, skills, ideas and connections to make a positive impact. The RSA hopes to unlock the potential in human, social and natural capital to achieve a more resilient, rebalanced, and regenerative future for all. This approach is reflected in Jason’s recruitment and education philosophy since operating Heritage Consultancies in London, in supporting the MSc Historic Conservation course at Oxford Brookes University with occasional lectures and annual prizes for students, which have led to successful candidates gaining full time employment in the field of building conservation and heritage planning. It is Jason’s intention for this support to continue to be provided through Vitruvius Heritage.
