Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Discover this rich slice of London as it gears up for the changes that Crossrail will bring in 2018, offering a diverse neighborhood mix of retail, residential and workspace use.
Our Holborn walk starts from the new face-to-face Farringdon Station entrance anticipating Crossrail’s arrival. The effect is redefining a handful of so-called “laggard” linking neighbourhoods in the heart of London. From the Farringdon and Clerkenwell borders across the edge of Smithfield, Holborn to the Strand, the tour features stunningly re-activated sites emerging alongside fresh architectural expression in the learning/work/living/leisure mix now articulated across the metropolis. Along our walk, we consider contributions from architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, KPF, John Robertson Architects, Orms, O’Donnell + Tuomey and many more. This walk starts at Farringdon Station new entrance, Cowcross Street.
