At its next meeting, on 5 July, the Forum will hear from the architects Bennetts Associates about the plans for the Sports Hall on York Way, near Rubicon Court and Saxon Court. This is the third building in the neighbourhood by the architects, the others being the Camden Council Offices and the Midland Goods Shed. It has led to some interesting design challenges, such as being metres above the railway tunnels but needing to stand out as a public building.
Then Julia Finlayson, a landscape architect from Argent, will discuss the intentions for the public spaces around the site, looking at green and grey spaces, pedestrian and cyclist routes, disabled access, and so on.
The meeting is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Tuesday 5 July in the Saxon Court Meeting Room in Beaconsfield Street. All are welcome to this (and every other) meeting of the Forum. If you have been to meetings of the Forum before, please pay particular attention to the time and place.
