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.
When James Stirling’s final British building, No1 Poultry, was unveiled - and greeted with mixed reviews - in the mid-nineties, few would have thought the Postmodern icon would be Grade A-listed some twenty years later.
Yet in recent years the controversial style has been recognised as crucial to our built heritage with 20 such examples of Postmodernism – or PoMo - in London now officially listed.
This walking tour takes in some of London’s most well-known and hard-to-find pieces of PoMo as well as key modern buildings along the way.
Your guide is a heritage consultant with the renowned conservation Architecture practice, Purcell and has written widely on 20th Century and contemporary architecture.
Tour duration 2.5-3hrs. Tour ends at Tower Bridge.
