20th Century Buildings in Hackney
Sat, February 25, 2017, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM GMT
This two hour walk looks at the exteriors of very different buildings, all built during the 20th Century. From the grandeur of the famous Hackney Empire, civic pride of Hackney Town Hall, and the post war simplicity of Brett Manor, to more recent buildings like Sutton Square and Hackney Academy, Hackney has a range of buildings built in response to a variety of needs.
Footprints of London guide Rob Smith will talk about the buildings and some of the social history context in which they were built, and there will be chance to discuss the direction in which architecture in this part of Hackney is going in a local Cafe after the walk.
