Event description

Description

Although tall buildings are increasingly dominating the City’s skyline the vast majority of new development within the square mile is retrofit, where an historic or post-war building is re-clad or renovated in order to make it suitable for 21st Century use. This tour will include some of the best and most recent examples of retrofit including Lutyen’s former Midland Bank now luxury hotel The Ned and Frederick's Place a perfectly preserved Georgian cul de sac down Old Jewry opposite James Stirling's 1 Poultry. We will examine these and many other notable examples of retrofit considering how it enables architects to preserve the past while providing for the future.
