The Architecture of Life is a walking tour exploring the cultural and artistic landmarks of London’s South Bank. The event tells the story of how the UK capital reinvented itself in the mid-twentieth century as a democratic and international centre for design, creativity and tourism.
The Architecture of Money is a walking tour exploring the City of London. From its Roman foundations, through medieval origins and right up to its present status as a global financial centre, the walk takes in the towering blocks, ancient landmarks and mysterious alleyways of this remarkable and enduring fortress city. Walkers will witness the latest wave of bold new architecture transforming the district, including the Rothschild Bank headquarters by cutting edge theorist Rem Koolhaas, Norman Foster’s Bloomsburg Headquarters and the One New Change shopping centre by French architect Jean Nouvel.
The Architecture of Power is a walking tour exploring historic Westminster – the home of British monarchy and democracy. Starting outside the imposing façade of Buckingham Palace, the walk delves into London’s royal precinct where hidden architectural gems include the home of Prince Charles, Clarence House, the official residence of the Queen, St James’ Palace, and the headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat, Wellington House. The tour will last for two hours, beginning at the The Diana Fountain, Green Park and ending at Trafalgar Square.
