Reimagine Golden Lane at Net Zero

01 June 2024

11:00 -12:30

How do you tackle conservation, climate emergency and biodiversity loss in a post-war listed estate in the City of London?

Golden Lane Estate was designed by architects Chamberlin, Bon and Powell who later went on to design the Barbican Estate and Leeds University. Golden Lane Estate is listed Grade II and II* and is therefore immune from demolition. However tackling net zero and biodiversity loss is a major challenge for buildings of this age.

Over the past three years, there has been considerable interest in working out how to improve the resilience of Golden Lane. A campaign Imagine Golden Lane at Net Zero started during lockdown. This resident-led project has a vision for Golden Lane which addresses cycling, walking, energy conservation, repairs, waste, recycling, biodiversity and greening.

This guided walk will look at the waya in which the estate is functioning, consider how it might be improved and debate some of the contradictions that follow from an attempt to conserve heritage and tackle climate emergency.
