Future of the Royal Adelaide Hospital heritage precinct

Presented by Marcus Beresford

The Royal Adelaide Hospital is arguably one of the most significant sites of social heritage in South Australia and also contains a suite of architecturally significant stripped classical and modernist buildings without equal. With the construction of a new hospital to the west, what is the future of the current site, which represents such a huge investment of wealth, materials and commitment? This presentation will look at some of the history and treasures of the site and how it could continue as a major community asset.

Marcus Beresford has been a National Trust of South Australia (NTSA) Councillor 2009-2012 and Chairman of the NTSA Natural Heritage Committee 2012. Marcus has had a passion for buildings since doing countless childhood drawings of house plans. A Bachelor of Laws and Master in Environmental Laws, his career has included 10 years at the Art Gallery of SA in public relations and 10 years with the Conservation Council of SA as an environmental advocate.
