New London Neighbourhood Tour - Holborn
Saturday 14 January 2017
14:00-16:00 (Registration at 13:45)
Our Holborn walk starts from the new face-to-face Farringdon Station entrance anticipating Crossrail’s arrival. The effect is redefining a handful of so-called “laggard” linking neighbourhoods in the heart of London. From the Farringdon and Clerkenwell borders across the edge of Smithfield, Holborn to the Strand, the tour features stunningly re-activated sites emerging alongside fresh architectural expression in the learning/work/living/leisure mix now articulated across the metropolis. Along our walk, we consider contributions from architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, KPF, John Robertson Architects, Orms, O’Donnell + Tuomey and many more.
This walk starts at Farringdon Station new entrance, Cowcross Street.
