RIBA Friends have a couple of walks and tours coming up that will be of interest to members.
Architecture Tour: White Collar Factory: Monday 11 September, 12:30pm to 2pm
Come and explore the White Collar Factory, a 16-storey tower at the epicentre of London’s ‘Tech City.’ The building is in Old Street Yard and provides a mix of living and incubator working spaces to make a new place in the city which combines the efficiencies of a new build with the character of a 19th century warehouse.
The group will be taken around the building by the project architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) and developer Derwent. Further details here.
Architecture Walking Tour: Pathways to Mayfair: Saturday 16 September, 11am to 1pm
From open fields to shepherds’ markets to one of the most affluent areas in London today, Mayfair is a byword for luxury. In the third of our 2017 series of walks with the London Ambler, we explore the architectural history in and around Mayfair, ending at 66 Portland Place. Further details here.
