We are looking at a area in Poplar from the point of view of the Town Centre. It’s been fascinating to work alongside Papa and the Lagos perspective, because a Town Centre in a city of 20 million is something different to our English sensibility.
We are putting together a presentation and set of activities that will go towards a large celebration of emigre architecture. They will take place at the Balfron Tower, designed by Erno Goldfinger organised by the British Council this Saturday. Olly Wainwright talked about the event recently on The Guardian and we are very honoured to take part.
We visited Erno Goldfinger’s house as part of the briefing and on this blog are a few pictures of it. A beautiful place. We’ll post further after the event to show what happened.
