This week's hot weather and host of walking events lined up begs for you to get outside and hit the streets to uncover the city's architectural fabric. Explore the urban grain either by vintage bus on Sir Peter Hendy's charity Routemaster tour, or by foot with OpenCity as they delve into the hip neighbourhood of Shoreditch. Be sure to catch HÛT's 'Pixel HUT 3.0' in Bankside before it is dismantled next week; set up as part of this year's London Festival of Architecture, it also served as part of the background of The Great Get Together.
Jump onboard a restored classic Routemaster bus with NLA's Peter Murray and Sir Peter Hendy, and travel with them through south-west London exploring the potential opportunities that would be brought about by Crossrail 2. This Hendy Routemaster Tour will be raising funds to allow wider access to the architectural profession by supporting students from diverse backgrounds.
This lecture at The Royal Academy will be their 28th Annual Architecture Lecture, and will be delivered by curators of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale and founders of Grafton Architects, Shelly McNamara and Yvonne Farrell. They will be discussing their work relating to the 'Freespace', the theme for this year's show, as well as touching on their extensive and award-winning international portfolio.
The recent listing of James Stirling's No1 Poultry firmly puts post-modern (PoMo) architecture on the map for London. With around 20 more examples of the style built since Stirling's iconic project throughout the city, this tour will take walkers around both well-known and hidden examples of the style.
Visit this exhibition at the RIBA featuring the projects from eleven winners of the Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship. This prestigious and lusted-after grant is awarded to architecture students who show outstanding and original thinking in regards to the future of the urban environment.
Take a tour around the trendy neighbourhood of Shoreditch with New London Architecture. This creative hub, once a redundant area of old factories and workshops, is now packed full of start-ups and independent cafes. This walk will open up the history of these once rubbish-strewn alleyways, and show how Shoreditch has become a vibrant and thriving neighbourhood.
