Arne Jacobsen and St Catherine's College

On Saturday 27 August 2022, St Catherine’s College is hosting a one-day conference in celebration of the 60th anniversary of its opening its doors to its first students. The conference will focus on Arne Jacobsen’s work at St Catherine’s both in its 1960s context and as seen in the present-day from the perspectives both of 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 work with the architect and their own roles in the design and construction of the College. Speakers include, Stephen Hodder, past President of the RIBA and architect of the College’s newer Staircases 17-19, 20-26 and the JCR Lecture Theatre and Tobias Jacobsen, the architect’s grandson
