Conference organized by The Architecture Foundation, about "Opening of Rainham Marshes", special mention in the European Prize for Urban Public Space.Peter Beard LANDROOM’s project for opening Rainham Marsh to public access received a special mention in the 2014 European Prize for Urban Public Space awards. To mark the opening of a new exhibition about the prize, this evening event offers an opportunity to hear from Beard and other architects who have been working in Rainham within the context of a strategy to improve the town’s public infrastructure. Delivered by the Greater London Authority and the London Borough of Havering over the past decade, the new work ranges in scale from landscape proposals by architects including East and What if: projects, to the remodeling of existing buildings by Civic Architects and Alison Brooks, and a new library, nursery and housing project designed by Maccreanor Lavington which formalizes a square outside Rainham station.
This evening event will feature the screening of a film about Rainham produced by the Architecture Foundation.
Presented in association with the Royal Academy.
