Sketchwalk City

03 June 2023

10:30 -13:30

Join architect Nuno Pais and illustrator Lis Watkins to walk from Farringdon Station to Liverpool Street Station, sketching a variety of buildings along the way, all of which share one thing in common - they are all multi-unit residential urban blocks. The buildings reflect the changing homes in the area from the 1930s to the present day. We will stop off at four points along the route to make sketches of notable buildings: the Art Deco block “Florin Court” in Charterhouse Square; the Founders’ Hall in Cloth Fair, a mixed-use Post-modern scheme incorporating apartments, offices and civic functions; the Modernist Barbican Estate; and the recently built One Crown Place in Sun Street, an example of a contemporary Neo-Liberalist mixed-use development, with flats, a hotel and amenity spaces.

Saturday 3rd June 2023
Meet outside Farringdon Station at 10.30, finish at Liverpool Street Station at 13.30.
A small sketchbook and fineliner pen will be provided for everyone in the group but you are welcome to bring your own materials too.
