Wednesday 18 July, 13.15-14.30
The Heron Tower
The Heron Tower, completed in 2011, is organised around a series of office 'villages' with a triple-height atrium at the heart of each, providing highly flexible work space to support diverse tenant needs. Unlike the earlier generation of tall buildings in the City, this is a transparent and articulate structure, designed to temper growing urban concerns associated with construction, operation and maintenance through the integration of innovative technology to promote environmental responsibility.
Set on a prominent site at the junction of Bishopsgate and Camomile Street in the heart of the City of London, the building provides a marker to the northern edge of the city core. To the south, a slender lift core is animated by the movement of glazed lift cars, two of which provide access to the new public restaurant at roof level. To the east and west, a transparent ventilated facade creates a bio-climatic, energy-efficient enclosure.
Paul Simovic - Director and Laura Piccardi - Associate Principal of architectural practice KPF will lead a tour inside The Heron Tower, discussing key features of its design.
