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.
As regeneration takes to London's waterways, getting the design right for waterside buildings and public realm can mean vibrant, accessible spaces with social and employment opportunities; healthy environments for people and wildlife; and safeguarded heritage. Getting it wrong risks cutting Londoners off from these valuable aspects of waterways for decades to come.
Designing buildings and public realm near water requires careful consideration. Towpaths, facilities for boaters, water-specific infrastructure, lighting requirements, and other factors create unique and sometimes unfamiliar design conditions.
As part of our Making the Most of London's Waterways project, the Canal & River Trust will lead a Designing With Water workshop to share their experience of helping to shape and deliver waterway development throughout London and beyond.
This event is free to attend thanks the Canal & River Trust and core project supporters Arup, Avison Young, Hadley, and Pollard Thomas Edwards, but places are limited and registration is essential.
