Description

Concrete elegance: care and culture

Date: 22 November

Time: 6.30pm - 8.45pm

Location: The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7BT


Prefabrication, reuse of existing structure and exposed high quality concrete surfaces are three very current approaches to concrete construction. These are exemplified in the projects featured in this evening's Concrete Elegance lecture: Cancer Care Centre, Guy’s Hospital, London by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Arup and Laing O'Rourke Expanded; Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa), Cape Town designed by Heatherwick Studio.

Projects will be presented by their architect and other key collaborators, sharing design development and construction experiences to create fine examples of contemporary concrete architecture.


Speakers include:

- Stepan Martinovsky, project leader at Heatherwick Studio (Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town)

- Francis Archer, associate director at Arup (Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town)

- Leonardo Pelleriti, formerly associate at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (Cancer Care Centre, Guy’s Hospital, London)

- Gerardina Guarino, senior structural engineer at Arup (Cancer Care Centre, Guy’s Hospital, London)

- Eamonn Dolan, project leader and civil engineer at Laing O'Rourke Expanded (Cancer Care Centre, Guy’s Hospital, London)

- Elaine Toogood, senior architect at The Concrete Centre (Chair)

The evening will be followed by questions and a drinks reception.


Registration begins at 6.00pm for a prompt 6.30pm start.


This event is produced by The Concrete Centre and The Built Environment Trust and booking information is therefore provided for both organisations.
