EVENT - Talk
Monday, 30 July, 6:30 - 8:30
How We Work is a Members Only 'behind the scenes' series of informal evenings with a key principal from one of the capital's leading design studios. The evening will look at the studio’s history, current and future projects.
Alan Baxter Ltd as a design practice is unusual in that much of its work is a fusion of engineering, urbanism and conservation practiced in a joined up way from which many of the best ideas come.
They work with many of the top architects in Britain and in the last few years have been part of two Stirling Prize winning teams and one short listed. Good design which creates long term value runs through the many different complex projects. The knowledge from one often informs many other projects and our library and archives are very important to the practice.
Jobs range in size. Some are very large like our scheme design for the £700m redevelopment of London Bridge Station and the reworking of the Palace of Westminster. They then range from new residential buildings and museum extensions to tiny structural repairs in important historic buildings. Everyone is working on many different projects and the experience and knowledge gained is significant.
Join Alan Baxter and the Society for this intimate Members Only evening as we discover the past, present and future of one of London’s most successful design studios.
