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.
An opportunity to look at the changing face of cities and the nature of work, with a debate on how we balance the competing needs for land use while accommodating the type of jobs, industry and infrastructure needed for a healthy, functioning city and economy.
The event will include presentations on:
The reinvention of the former Philips’ factories in Eindhoven as mixed-use neighbourhoods, blending a wide range of cultural and commercial uses with mixed income homes, leisure uses and open space; (Thom Aussems, Trudo)
Industry City, New York, where the revitalisation of 6 million square feet of 19th century workspace is carefully balancing existing manufacturing tenants with those centered on the creative and innovation economy; (Andrew Kimball, Industry City);
London’s Here East, 1.2 million square feet of commercial space for the innovative business and maker community, being fashioned out of 2012 Olympic Press and Broadcast Centre. (Gavin Poole, Here East & David Bickle, Hawkins Brown).
Followed by a panel debate, also including Fiona Fletcher Smith, Greater London Authority (GLA) and Jo Negrini, Croydon Council, and the launch of a LFA/GLA initiative to design integrated workspace and homes in London.
