CONVERSATIONS: The Evolution of the built environment in The Bahamas

Holly Bynoe

On Thursday, June 15, starting at 7 p.m. the NAGB will hold a conversation on the evolution of the built environment in The Bahamas with George V. Cox, Pat Rahming and Teran Nicholls in support of "George Cox: The Unseen Structure" through the lens of John Cox currently on view through July 9th, 2017.

The contemporary built environment of The Bahamas pre- and post-independence has been heavily influenced by the economic, political and social environment over the last 50 years. George Cox is joined by fellow civil engineers and former colleagues Pat Rahming and Teran Nicolls as he shares his experiences as a key contributor to the changing physical landscape of the island of New Providence between the 1960s and early 2000s and to the elevation of the civil engineering profession in The Bahamas. 

Moderated by his son John Cox, conversations around the long-term impact of his practice, the importance of strong familial ties and the political implication of civil engineering in a post-colonial environment, will be at the core of the evening’s dialogue.
