Block Magazine, Groarke, Hills and Lynch take over the Bookshop

On Tuesday night the RIBA Bookshop hosted a table top discussion in collaboration with Block Magazine. Editor of Block, Rob Wilson invited architects Andy Groarke, David Hills and Patrick Lynch to talk about the design and construction process of some of their most recent London projects. The three architects brought models and drawings of the Filling Station at King’s Cross (Carmody & Groarke),the Alex Monroe Studio (DSDHA) and Victoria Street (Lynch Architects), and talked about the philosophy and design process behind each one of the projects from the initial competition stage, through to completion. The presentation sought out to explore how commercial developments in architecture affect community life, public space, diversity, culture and economy through an open dialogue between the architects and the public, who challenged our speakers with a variety of points of view and questions. We hope to continue engaging the public with the architecture community through our bookshop events. If you’d like to find out about future bookshop evenings you can request to be included in our events mailing list
