Saturdays: 13 May, 20 May, 27 May, 3 June, & 10 June, 11:30 - 12:30
Join the Society for this informative series of five Saturday morning talks with some of London's leading experts and learn about the architectural styles that make up the city.
London is not characterised by any particular architectural style, as it has accumulated its buildings over a long period. This Saturday School series will help you to explore some of these styles, to identify the periods to which they belong, learn how to read the codes and to understand the design pedigree of the buildings that surround us.
Covering architecture from medieval age right through to contemporary times, the sessions at the Saturday School are suitable for anyone with a love of London. The format is informal and no specialist knowledge is required.
Speakers are chosen for their expertise in each era and the talks will be fully illustrated. There will be ample time for discussion and questions afterwards.
Classes will be held between 11:30 and 12:30/1pm at The Building Centre where we will have access to New London Architecture's magnificent 1:300,000 scale model of London to help illustrate each of these talks. The Gentleman Baristas' will also be on hand in the cafe to supply you with some of the best coffee in town!
