Just a brief last thought (I’ve almost blogged myself out in this afternoons frenzy of posting!) –
Another thing the CCW visits have brought to the front of my mind is the importance of achieving a balance between the old and the new in our move to Stratford in 2020.
Looking at installs at CCW the key for me is finding a way to fit their spaces with modern AV and IT solutions while not detracting from their charm / old school style. Camberwell in particular is an amazing space with wood paneled ceilings, stained glass and a mezzanine balcony. How do we keep this intact and fit for the future?
And that’s the same question / challenge I think that faces Stratford. How do we recreate the experience, the freedom and workability of spaces like Curtain road and Golden lane in a modern building?
Its another balancing act!
