Hackney Wick Walking Tour

Hackney Wick Walking Tour


Adjacent to the Olympic Park, Hackney Wick has undergone a major period of transformation since 2012; changing from an industrial hub to a creative quarter to a new residential centre. 

Karakusevic Carson Architects and the LLDC will lead a tour around the new neighbourhood, visiting key sites in the masterplan, reflecting on the original intent and the built outcome. The walking tour will include a selection of buildings on LLDC plots, covering the planning context, and the design codes/controls that lead to their completion. The tour will end with a Q&A and a reflection on the lessons learnt throughout the last decade of Hackney Wick's transformation.

The tour will begin at Hackney Wick Station at 18:00 promptly.
