As part of this series of events showcasing 2018's Award winners, The David Attenborough Building will host a talk and tour by Nicholas Hare Architects.

"A first-rate example of how the integrity of a modernist building can be retained, and it’s future protected, by a clear headed conversion to new, highly appropriate uses."

The repair and restoration of modern classic buildings require as much skill, care and research as more common conservation projects. At the David Attenborough building Nicholas Hare architects used all the traditional conservation skills but also connected with the spirit and muscularity of the original building.

This scheme has won a RIBA Regional Award, Regional Conservation Award and RIBA National Award.

This event is part of our Great British Buildings series of talks and tours around the country.
