Join Open City for a socially-distanced walking tour exploring the pioneering contemporary architecture of Design District and Greenwich Peninsula
Led by up-and-coming architect and tour guide Morgan Lewis, this insightful and engaging tour will visit iconic developments across this historic 60 hectare riverside site which is the focus of an ambitious phased £8.4 billion redevelopment masterplan.
Starting and finishing at Design District (home to the Bureau members club and also Canteen food hall where all participants may claim a 10 per cent discount on drinks) the walk will follow a circular route around the new waterfront neighbourhood which will soon be home to more than 35,000 people.
Key highlights will include the Design District – designed by HNNA, 6a, Adam Khan Architects, Architecture 00, Barozzi Veiga, David Kohn Architects, Mole Architects, Schulze+Grassov, SelgasCano – and the landmark NOW Gallery by Marks Barfield Architects.
Providing a safe and fun way for enthusiastic urbanists to explore the city, this walking tour is part of a new series responding to the core themes of the Open House festival and wider Open City programme.
Participants will discover the extraordinary stories of the ambitious architectural projects of Design District and Greenwich Peninsula.
