Event description

Description

A new walk for 2017, join NLA as we explore one of London’s most exciting and densely populated residential, retail and office neighbourhoods, anchored around one of London’s most visited sites, Covent Garden Market.

The walk leads from the 18th C formality of one of London’s best-preserved squares on the Bedford Estate to the 21st century version in Renzo Piano’s Central St Giles. Piano’s citrus-coloured agglomeration borders the area taking its name from London’s earliest and most famous square: Covent Garden Piazza. Inigo Jones’ late 17th century revolutionary slice of town planning for the Earl of Bedford, although profoundly altered over the centuries, endures with a similar live/work mix to influence key developments all over central London today. A mix of ingenious modern infills rising inside the original street grid respect, revitalise and protect this buzzing and densely populated residential, retail and office zone.

This walk starts at New London Architecture.
