Two years ago Hawkins\Brown, BuroHappold Engineering and UCL jointly presented their emerging design proposals for the re-imagined Wates House, home of the Bartlett School of Architecture. We promised a follow up and are delighted to offer tours around the school as part of Green Sky Thinking 2017.
Hawkins\Brown, BuroHappold and UCL staff will be showing small groups of people around the building, explaining the key architectural and environmental aspects of the scheme and answering questions.
