Rediscover Clerkenwell with Ben Adams Architects

During this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week, Ben Adams Architects, together with SEA, FFLO and Monotype, will present ‘The Changing Face of Clerkenwell’ – a walking tour and accompanying talk that makes up part of the Festival’s Fringe series of events.


As a place, Clerkenwell is representative of many of the issues facing London as a whole, such as the need to integrate quality public space, the retrofitting of existing buildings for multiple uses and the changing needs of a modern workforce. Taking Clerkenwell as an example, Ben Adams Architects will explore how architecture, landscaping, graphics and wayfinding can help move a city neighbourhood forward and embrace change.

Through the walking tour and talk, the practice will examine how Clerkenwell is changing, and will aim to predict how the architectural and graphic fabric of the neighbourhood will develop over the coming decade.
