Reclaim Holloway are delighted to be hosting a series of panel discussion at the London Festival of Architecture about the Women’s Building to be built on the site of HMP Holloway, once the largest women’s prison in Western Europe.
We are hosting a discussion every Monday evening in June and you can see the schedule of events and book your place, for free, here:
We have invited exciting panelists to join the discussions and to consider: the transformative potential of the Women's Building, how memory and legacy can be preserved and expressed in architecture, and how to develop a socially just, gender-informed Women's Building on the site.
Our panels of female architects, academics, women's services providers and construction workers will reflect on these questions and more.
The events have all been chosen as some of the LFA curator picks for the festival! We're thrilled to have received such a positive and invigorating response. The events are designed to generate discussion around the development of the site and to influence the future of the Women’s Building development before plans for the site are submitted for planning.
We'd love to see you there!
