Traditionally the historic and financial heart of the capital, The City of London continues to experience ongoing regeneration. Home to some of London’s largest and most high-profile tall buildings, this ever-changing neighborhood offers bustling excitement alongside creative public realm projects and cultural buildings.
New London Neighbourhood Tour - The City
Saturday 11 March 2017
14:00-16:00 (Registration at 13:45)
The City Centre, 80 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5AR
Our walk will explore the next set of schemes in the City cluster by top architects including PLP Architecture, Eric Parry Architects and KPF. At Bank Junction, the heart of Square Mile, we’ll discover a range of medium height mixed-use developments which are slotted into voids left by redundant Victorian and post World War II buildings. Working with conservation restraints, projects such as Stirling Wilford’s No 1 Poultry and Foster + Partners’ Bloomberg London redefine the City’s prime economic role while emphasising the importance of public realm.
This walk will start and finish at The City Centre, 80 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5AR.
