We'll discuss the architecture of the new Millennium and the latest visions to transform Greenwich's dramatic peninsula
Join the Architecture Foundation for a walking tour exploring the Greenwich Peninsula. Discover the major schemes transforming this former industrial wasteland into London’s newest and most ambitious mixed-use district.
From mediaeval palace to Baroque masterpiece, Greenwich has been dramatically shaped by its inhabitants from the Romans to the present day. A landscape of architectural innovation, scientific discovery, education, entertainment and tourism – Greenwich is poised to embark on its grandest transformation yet.
Eighteen years after the turn of the Millennium plans have been approved for 15,000 new homes around the iconic Dome. Learn about the motionless waterfront quays in East Greenwich earmarked for London’s new cruise ship terminal and an eight hectare OMA masterplan, Morden Wharf.
