Architecture themed ride – concrete two

Our next Architecture Ride will be on Saturday 30 September and will be the second episode of our exploration of the many and dazzling things that can done with an often maligned building material – Concrete!

Following last year’s Concrete One ride in West and North London, we are now running Concrete Two, visiting some concrete delights of South London and the City.

While concrete is often associated with the architecture of the 1960s, and in particular the style known as brutalism, it remains a widely-used building material, employed both for its structural and aesthetic qualities. The ride will include some 60s and 70s ‘classics’ as well as more recent buildings that make full use of this versatile and varied building material.

Meet at the entrance to Stockwell Bus Garage on Lansdowne Way, SW4 at 10.45.

The ride, which will be easy-paced and as much as possible on quiet roads, will finish on the South Bank at around 4.00pm, with lunch along the way.

Ride led by Tessa Wright and Mark Knox. Enquiries – Mark 07765 945530.
