The Brick Development Association has just announced a new speaker for the forthcoming Urban Regeneration Day 2016. Peter Murray, founder and chairman of New London Architecture, will be speaking at the unique full-day event on 20th May. The world renowned writer and commentator on architecture joins a stellar line-up of respected and knowledgeable industry experts discussing how brick as a cladding material has added value to urban regenerated areas across the country.
Peter will be speaking about the term, ‘new London vernacular’, and its description of shared characteristics and converging design similarities across London in recent years. He will also be discussing the drivers behind this new terminology which encompasses all of London’s urban design and sharing details of exciting projects happening across our beautiful capital.
It is a must-see event not only for specifiers looking to find out more about how brick both influences and contributes to urban regeneration, but also for contractors and practitioners who will be able to further investigate the technical possibilities for this most flexible of building materials.
Urban Regeneration Day will be hosted by the Brick Development Association at Arup’s office on Fitzroy Street, London. To see this talk, along with discussions from architects such as Joe Morris of Morris Duggan Architects and Alex Gordon of Jestico + Whiles, with many more great speakers to be announced, make sure you buy your tickets now!
