    Architecture Tour of Smithson Plaza for Christie's Lates

    Last night, for Christie's Lates, Director Deborah Saunt hosted a talk at the nearby Smithson Plaza, discussing the Smithsons' legacy and showcasing DSDHA's recent restoration of the duo's celebrated complex.

    In collaboration with the new owner Tishman Speyer and Encounter Contemporary, the project has also reintroduced a public art programme to the Plaza, with a series of dramatic sculptures alternating in the main public space and a new art gallery at street level. All this ensures that once again, in line with the Smithsons' original vision, the complex can serve the public and the city, as a cultural gathering and focal point for the wider district of St James's.
