TALKS | FROM KINGS CROSS TO THE BEAR PIT

Thursday 25 April 2019, 18:30 to 20:00

How do we address the challenges of existing 19th & 20th century infrastructure and the contested spaces that have emerged in the absence of intervention? The Architecture Centre presents Christine Murray and Miriam Delogu to discuss place-making in contested spaces.

Find out how the 19th century railway infrastructure of Kings Cross has been transformed and what effect that has had on the surrounding neighbourhoods.
 
Discover the emerging plans for the Bearpit as we grapple with the legacy of 20th century highways.
 
How can these projects improve the cityscape for citizens in an inclusive way?
 
Join Christine Murray and Miriam Delogu to examine two city centre spaces which exemplify these challenges and opportunities.
