Many eminent architects, planners and historians have delivered the Wilkinson Lecture since those early days including the team who worked on the conservation of the Athens Parthenon in 2008 and Richard Francis-Jones, an alumnus of the faculty, who delivered the lecture in the main theatre of the new award-winning Law School, which he designed.
