Ely Court | Durham & Gloucester | East Parkside

Renowned London Architect Alison Brooks will be presenting her practice philosophy and her architectural approach relating to current and recently completed residential schemes in London. These schemes include: Ely Court, shortlisted for the 2017 Mies Award for contemporary European architecture; Durham & Gloucester Court, a mid-rise regeneration scheme in South Kilburn; and East Parkside, a high-density mixed-use scheme in Greenwich.

She will discuss how her architectural ideals of authenticity, generosity, civicness and beauty can be embedded in all urban development and will demonstrate the potential of housing to both express local culture and serve the wider community.
