Just off Tottenham Court Road sits the Building Centre and in a couple of months it turns 80, and will be hosting a range of events as part of an all-day celebration.
If you’ve never visited before (what do you mean you’ve never been there?) then this will as good an opportunity as any to gaze in wonder at the vast scale model of London they have in their main room – as well as attending the various talks and debates being hosted during the day.
The event is also good for construction students as it is literally as well as figuratively educational – attendance contributes to CPD requirements. For the rest of us it is educational and entertaining, without a certificate at the end.
The full list of events is here and booking for tickets opens on Monday.
