Join us for some breakfast snacks and films in the boardroom at HTFC Planning & Design. The firm specializes in landscape architecture, community and resource planning, economic development, urban and interpretive design.

Film is the viewing of images through light. Architecture is the interplay of built form in light. Can an Architectural Film present images of wood, light and stone that shape our religious and spiritual life? Ripon College is a 160 year old Church of England Theological College in Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire. It was founded by Samuel Wilberforce, the son of William Wilberforce, who led the movement to abolish the slave trade.

Níall McLaughlin Architects were commissioned to design a new chapel for Ripon College after winning an Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) competition in 2009. The project clients were the college and a small community of nuns resident on the site, the ‘Sisters of Begbroke’. The Bishop Edward King Chapel was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize after completion in 2013.
