Event description

Description

World famous for it’s theatres, retail and night life, discover London’s West End as it undergoes massive transformation and new placemaking projects.
As the West End evolves to redefine itself as a work/live/shopping destination, its narrow streets and wealth of protected heritage buildings are flexing to accommodate the trend. The new master-planned acres of Rathbone Square by Make Architects combine residences alongside mixed-scale businesses. Elsewhere, in New London Awards winning Ham Yard by Woods Bagot with Atkins Landscape Architects, a warren of unwelcoming back street alleys from a different era have been rationalised and reconfigured into a stylish haven for offices, hotels, restaurants and shops. Entire streetscapes like Nash’s Regent Street, Waterloo Place and Quadrant have returned Piccadilly to its former glory, giving back generously to the public realm. We explore new builds and retrofits by Eric Parry Archiects, Orms, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, Woods Bagot and more.
This walk starts at New London Architecture.
