Down by the Riverbank - LFA site tour and presentation on Identity, 26th June 2018 Practice News
Join us, 'Down by the riverbank', at Pontoon Dock on the 26th of June, where we will be exploring alongside Glen Howells Architects, Serie Architects and HAL architects, what gives Royal Wharf, an area steeped in history, its identity.
Part of the Royal Docks regeneration area and formerly Minoco Wharf, Royal Wharf was originally riverside marshes before becoming part of the world’s biggest port in the 19th century. The area is now being transformed by Ballymore and Oxley into a new community for approximately 10,000 residents. Our 14-storey building at Royal Wharf forms a part of this development, our design reflecting the geology of the riverbank with a textured façade inspired by oyster shells discovered in the excavation of dock walls.
The site tour will be followed by a presentation and discussion and is part of the London Festival of Architecture programme, a citywide and month-long event promoting architectural experimentation, practice and debate.June 2018 Click here to book your place
