With BSF projects coming to an end and less money available for new schools, we are hoping to have a lively evening focusing on innovative examples of primary and secondary school design in London, funding new schools in a period of economic difficulty and approaches to solving the critical need for more school places in London. This Pecha Kucha will hear from a number of architects, boroughs and developers who will discuss a number of interesting projects and look at the challenges of building London’s schools.
