Rebecca Moss

Rebecca Moss will be investigating the restoration of Bridgwater’s Castle House, one of the first buildings in the UK to use ornamental and structural concrete. Rebecca makes a link between Castle House and the coastal communities where concrete is an important material in flood defence

Rebecca said: “The idea of momentum often implies a forward trajectory, and I can see a clear parallel with restoration being a carrying forward of ideas – a restorer enables a building’s momentum, and its past significance to continue communicating to contemporary audiences. Momentum also relates to the resilience of concrete – a material developed to be strong and permanent.”
