Talk by architect Alex Lifschutz on 'The Architecture of Communinty Centres'


To accompany 20//20's exhibition at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, we are hosting a series of events. On Thursday 24th November 2011 we will investigate the future of the architecture of community centres with our special guest speaker Alex Lifschutz, director of Lifshutz Davidson Sandilands. 6pm: Exhibition is open to the public ... 7.30pm: ALEX LIFSCHUTZ Lecture by the world-renowned architect on his current project The Jewish Community Centre. Lifschutz's work comprises a wide variety of award winning projects including supermarkets, a green power station, the Royal Victoria Dock Bridge, offices and residential buildings. For over 20 years he has worked on London's South Bank for, among others, clients Coin Street Community Builders. Such projects include working with local groups and organisations to regenerate the area, drawing up master plans and completing the Palm Housing Coop at Broadwall and Oxo Tower Wharf. Most recently, he worked on the Doon Street community swimming and sports centre with its residential tower. Alex is interested in the ability of design to create buildings and cities that respond to change and that are easily adapted by those who use them. He has developed construction and furniture systems that empower users to easily alter buildings both in the initial construction process and throughout their life. His talk will concentrate on the Jewish Community Centre but will ask what is the future of architecture designed for community use?
