Join the architect for a one off architectural talk and tour as they reveal the stories behind the building, what inspired them and what makes their building an RIBA Award winner.
Thames Tower is so much more than just another smart office building. It distinguishes itself through the creative re-use of the skeleton of its predecessor, the huge contribution it makes to the public realm, and the refined purity of its architecture.
The effect on the surrounding area is remarkable. Reading’s major urban space is now graced by a building of modern majesty. It is simply a commercial office which offers to the town a gracious colonnade and a new coffee shop and restaurant at ground level, but its impact on the public realm is more far-reaching than that: the building’s calm aura of assured quality upgrades the space - and the town.
James Silver of Landid and Stuart McLarty from dn-a will be speaking about the thinking behind the scheme.
This event is part of our Great British Buildings series of talks and tours around the country.
