The Edge is a distinctive modern dwelling manufactured in Britain by Boutique Modern Ltd. They produce modular houses that are designed with sustainability and energy-efficiency in mind. One design element that makes the Edge stand out is its exterior framework of galvanized structural steel. Boutique Modern says it was inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Farnsworth House. The steel framework gives the building the needed strength to be delivered from the factory and lifted into place, and to be relocated again if necessary. Unlike the glass-walled Farnsworth House, the Edge’s framework is filled in with a combination of solid walls interspersed with sections of floor-to-ceiling glass. The oak siding, galvanized steel and glass complement each other quite nicely for a pleasing overall appearance. The Edge comes in two sizes, 12.3 m x 6.75 m (about 42′ x 22′) and 15.5 m x 6.75 m (about 52′ x 22′). Although factory-built, each home is built to order and can be customized by the purchaser. As none of the interior walls are load-bearing, the room layouts and window placements can be changed to suit the client and the specific conditions of the destination site. Typically the smaller version will be configured as a two-bedroom floor plan while the larger version will be used for three-bedroom plans. The Edge shown here is the show home for Penmayne Edge Park, a small vacation home development in Rock, North Cornwall that will eventually be home to ten of the modular dwellings. As a show home, it contains a number of optional upgrades. However even the base models leave the Boutique Modern factory with a high level of finishes that include engineered hardwood flooring and in-floor heating. Energy requirements are kept low by the use of highly-insulating structural insulated panels for the walls, floor and roof. The large south-facing windows (window size and placement is customized for the site conditions) allow for passive solar heat gain, and are triple glazed to keep the heat in at night. As a result, Boutique Modern anticipates that passive solar will provide the bulk of the heating. Supplemental heating is electric. To offset a portion of the electricity use, all Edge homes come with one kilowatt of photo-voltaic solar panels as standard equipment, and there is an option for more. Other environmentally friendly features include a rainwater collection system and an optional green roof.

http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/brihc Nicholas Crowson is Professor of Contemporary British History at the University of Birmingham. His areas of interest include homelessness,social activism and modern British politics. Previous publications include The Politics of Expertise: How NGOs Shaped Modern Britain (Oxford University Press, 2013) and The Longman Companion to the Conservative Party since 1830 (Longman, 2001). He also co-created the Database on the Archives of UK Non-Governmental Organisations since 1945 (DANGO), a research tool to enable researchers to identify the archives of NGOs. In December 1896, Tramp, Alfred D., appeared before magistrates at Leicester Castle, accused under the 1824 Vagrancy Act of begging alms. Beyond a name no clues exists as to who Alfred D. was, or from where he originated. He was nothing more than a criminal statistic. The judicial system felt no need to understand, or explain, how or why Alfred D., found himself to be begging. In this lecture, Professor Crowson will show how it has now become possible to trace the life stories of individual vagrants such as Alfred D., and in doing so will be able to cast light upon a forgotten section of society showing not only whom these people were, but where they moved about the country and importantly explaining why they were in this predicament between late Victorian times and the inter-war years. This talk was part of the BRIHC Spring Series 2017, public lectures by world class researchers from Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures. for more information please visit www.birmingham.ac.uk/springseries17 .

Common Ground Symposium: 'Imperial Past, Unequal Present' 10th - 11th June 2017, University of Oxford Memories of Empire in Contemporary Britain - Panel Discussion Saturday 10th June, 2-4pm Lecture Room 1, Christ Church The British Empire, which arguably reached its peak in the nineteenth century, is still with us: its legacy felt not only in ex-colonies, but within the culture, society and politics of Britain itself. With issues of race, religion, nationhood and immigration increasingly drawn upon by politicians and other public figures to make sense of a changed and changing Britain, the question ‘how did we get here?’ needs to be asked. SPEAKERS BILL SCHWARZ Professor of English at Queen Mary University, London. Bill is the author of The White Man’s World, winner of the 2013 Longman/History Today Book Prize and the first volume in ‘Memories of Empire’: a series which explores the afterlife that empire possessed in English politics and culture in the years after imperial rule had vanished. ROBERT GILDEA Professor of Modern History at Worcester College, Oxford. Robert’s research is characterised by its transnational qualities, and attention to collective memory and political culture. He is currently writing a comparative history on the legacies of empire in France and Britain between 1940 and the present, provisionally titled Empires of the Mind. KARAN KATOCH Postgraduate student undertaking research at the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies at Oxford. Karan’s thesis explores how Section 377, imposed on British India in 1860, continues to prohibit and inhibit LGBTQ visibility in India’s diaspora today. Karan is interested in selective memory: how elements of history are made invisible in the process of emigration. He has previously spoken at the 2016 Queer Asia conference at SOAS, University of London and the 2017 Oxford-Warsaw-Kraków research seminar on Politics and Development in South Asia Follow our movement at: https://commonground-oxford.com https://www.facebook.com/commongroundoxford/ https://twitter.com/commongroundox?lang=en
