14 April - London Conference Extension Day

AIA London Conference Extension Day - "North London Villages"

Monday, 14 April 2014 at 9.15am - 4:30pm

Meeting point: The Hall

10a South Grove

London N6 6BS

 

The London Conference Extension Day “North London Villages” is being administered independently from the main event.  That means that you now need to sign up formally for the event using the links provided even if you have previously given a YES confirmation via email.

This also allows the UK Chapter to open the event up to its full membership - even those who are unable to attend the Conference. 

 

The optional Extension Day explores leafy and hilly north London suburbs as an antidote to the urbanised central London sites of previous days. The tours offer a chance for visitors to see
the residential villages of Highgate and Hampstead and their less well known attractions.

 

Highlights of the day include Highgate Village and Highgate West Cemetery (with an architectural special tour), lunch at Kenwood House (with its art gallery, Robert Adams Library and views across the Heath to the London skyline), and Hampstead Village.
The Highgate West Cemetery Tour at 11:00 will be lead by the Cemetery Trust Director, who is an architectural historian and will concentrate on design, planning and conservation issues.

 

The cost is £20/person, which includes for the Highgate Cemetery tour, plus gratuities to the other tour guides. Tickets do not include transportation, meals and snacks. We should be able to take taxies from Highgate to Kenwood and Kenwood to Hampstead.

AIA UK Technical Lecture - Wood Potentials in Building Facades

Tuesday, 29 April 2014 at 6:30pm

Herman Miller Design Centre

61 Aldwych 

London WC2B 4AE

 

 

Michael Schindler Jr is the Managing Director of Schindler Fenster + Fassaden GmbH, a German design, fabricator and installer of high quality, bespoke facades. As part of the continuing lecture series on different materials, he will speak on the varied uses of wood in building facades – which could include wood panelling, wood elements within metal systems, complete wood or wood/composite windows, fully unitised wood systems or wood façade structural components. 
 
The lecture will be progressed via examples of recent and diverse Schindler projects and will touch not only on technical design development, but will also raise issues of costs, maintenance, production and sustainability. Feedback from the audience will be encouraged. 

 

 

Free but spaces are limited.
