Reimagining 60s London

Reimagining 60s London

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 20th Apr 2018

Focusing on the reuse of buildings originally created in the 1960s, this breakfast talk explores the recent work behind two well-known London icons – the Smithson’s Economist Building and Seifert’s Centre Point – to see how interventions have refreshed these structures for modern lifestyles. Examining these two case studies, we will hear from key project team members on how the amendments were conceived and delivered.

This event forms part of NLA’s year-round Conservation & Retrofit programme, which showcases the most sympathetic and innovative approaches taken with the capital’s many listed buildings, major areas of regeneration and the successful juxtaposition of old and new, celebrating heritage in a growing and fast-changing city.

Cost: Free of Charge
