This week offers many opportunities to get out into the city on guided tours and explore the built environment by foot. There's a real feeling of looking towards the future, from exhibitions showcasing the artists of tomorrow, to talks and walks about how the city and the architectural profession is to change in the coming years.
Explore one of
London's most iconic and imposing landmarks, Denys Lasdun's National Theatre.
The brutalist giant has proved to be both a talking point and the subject of
design debates since it's completion over 40 years ago.
Bankside can be
described as one of the most diverse spaces in the capital. From the forgotten
Southwark backstreets and alleys, to the soaring new developments including
Rodgers Stirk Harbour's Neo Bankside. This walk from the NLA will explore this rich mix of cultural,
residential, commercial, and public spaces.
The speaker for this event, Caroline Cole, has worked as many roles in the field; architect, director, design consultant, and client. The multi-disciplinary nature of her career, and the placement of her firm on the interface between consultants and clients, will inform this talk.
This short exhibition is an opportunity to see the emerging talent of tomorrow. FLUX is now in it’s fifth edition, and acts as a showcase for the students of Chelsea College of Arts. The opening party will bring music, performance art, and installations to the exhibition.
Whether it's a friend in the pub, a developer, or a politician, chances are someone has told you that the future for London is decidedly East. Canary Wharf and Stratford are indeed growing, and doing so successfully. Yet, as this tour intends to show, the feel of the area between these two hubs needs consideration, and the connection seems almost impossible by foot.
Architecture is a profession frequently accused of not embracing change as other industries evolve around it. This talk will look at speculative approaches to the changing built environment, as well as cross-examining the current trends in science and technology.
