Ram Quarter selected to participate in London Festival of Architecture

News 10 May 2024

Ram Quarter has been selected to participate in the London Festival of Architecture (LFA) which will take place throughout June.  Ram Quarter's inclusion reflects its unique place in London’s industrial history and its sensitive regeneration of the brewery complex.

Guided walking tours will be led at the development by EPR Architects, and will focus on the way that the development has maintained the site’s industrial heritage as the country’s oldest working brewery.  The tours will cover the development's achievements breathing new life into the site and the local area, balancing stunning modern design with the historic structures, opening previously-neglected spaces for public use and enjoyment, and creating a new hub of activity for the community in Wandsworth, complete with restaurants, cafés and shops.

This June will mark the twentieth annual LFA, which celebrates architecture and the built environment as a feature of London life.  This year’s theme is ‘reimagine’.  Events will examine the innovative ways that the challenges facing the capital can be tackled, and how creativity has supported Londoners throughout history.  In addition to the walking tours, other LFA events this year will include debates, talks, film screenings, workshops and exhibitions throughout the city.  From child-friendly activities to explorations of individual buildings, to broader views of whole neighbourhoods and the urban landscape at large, the programme has something for everyone.

Four tours will be held at Ram Quarter throughout the day on Wednesday 12 June. The tours are free to attend, but spaces are limited to 20 per tour, so booking is required.  Each tour will last 40 minutes.  The informal friendly walk around the development will cover its historic square and listed buildings, its new central boulevard, and a stroll along the pleasant riverwalk on the site's newly-accessible stretch of the river Wandle.  There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take photographs on this fascinating journey of discovery about urban planning, and how a former industrial site has been repurposed to serve the local community.  You can find out more and sign up here.
