Power Podcasts: Revealing the Silent Structures of the Royal Docks

NEWS |

The LFA has been working closely with the Royal Docks Team on a new exciting architecture podcast series. Focusing on this year’s theme of Power, this podcast and  walking tour looks at and celebrates the power of infrastructure in the Royal Docks. We hope by listening to these conversations you will learn something new about these often hidden yet fundamental sites at the heart of keeping the Royal Docks running.

Over the last few weeks we have been sharing some of the conversations we had with those involved in the projects. Click on the player below to hear the story of the sites.

Alternatively, you can also find the episodes on our Building Sounds podcast feed via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify Pocket Casts, or by searching for ‘Building Sounds’ wherever you normally get your podcasts.
