Join us at a free event showcasing the best of the Hackney’s architects and architecture. Hackney Architecture Showcase, taking place on Saturday 28th July and Sunday 29th July, will play host to some of London's leading architects who have designed structures or spaces in the borough, as well as Hackney-based architectural firms who are pioneering building design in the UK and across the globe.

Sunday 29th July: 11am – 3pm
With models of the schemes, a chance to speak to the people behind them and special talks on excellence in design, this event is a MUST for architects, designers and creatives and anyone with an interest in the exciting schemes that are transforming Hackney!
The weekend will also be the last chance to nominate a building or space in the borough for entry into this year's Hackney Design Awards, which celebrates great design and architecture in Hackney. Details of previous winners will feature at the event and anyone can make a nomination, including residents who inhabit newly developed homes; employees who enjoy their workplace; pupils who love their schools or people who are simply inspired by the look of a building or place in Hackney.
Featuring: Tim Ronalds' Hackney Empire (2004 Royal Fine Art Commission Building of the Year Award), RIBA winner Henley Halebrown Rorrison's projects in Hackney, Theis and Khan's Bateman's Row (2010 RIBA Stirling Award, Shortlisted), and Stephen Marshall Architects' proclaimed Nile Street Residential development (The best new development in the affordable sector at the New Homes Awards 2006).
