On 1 December 2022 RIBA South East London Architects gathered together for their Annual General Meeting held at the Taylor Maxwell showroom at London Bridge.

The evening marked the end of an 'era' with the voting for a new chair of the SELA, as the current Chair Elaine Toogood has decided to pass the baton after many years of continuous and dedicated steering! Elaine remains the beating heart of SELA but we are pleased to confirm that Abu Siddiki was voted a new Chair while Filip Zerjavic and Darren Stacey will remain in their respective positions of SELA's Secretary and Treasurer.

The Bridge Theatre Building Tour

The RIBA South East London Architect's Group went on this exclusive building tour, led by the architects who designed the building: Haworth Tompkins Architects.

The Bridge Theatre is London's first commercial theatre of scale for 80 years. Using innovative prefabrication techniques, the 900 to 1000 seat flexible auditorium is a collaboration between the architects, specialist manufacturer Tait Stage Technologies, and client London Theatre Company.

The 'as found' site comprised a shell and core, designed without a final use being established. It was a big challenge to fit a theatre in this existing space under a housing development, with minimal access to the site. The design had to work hard to incorporate existing columns coming down in locations which were not ideal.

The auditorium is ground-breaking both in design and construction, and in theatrical staging flexibility.
