The Upper Lee Valley Urban Pioneers go to Rotterdam

With the kind support of the Netherlands Architecture Institute, the Upper Lee Valley Urban Pioneers have just returned from a European study trip to Rotterdam.

They've been boating and biking around the city lookng at the relationship between water and the built environment; gone on a arcihtectural history tour by Archiguides; visited the offices of Maccreanor Lavington; and got stuck into workshops about waterfronts.

There will be a celebration event for the project on Monday 4 October where you can see all the work they've been producing. If you'd like to attend please email for more information.

In the meantime, keep track of what they get up to on their blog:
