Celebrating the landmark new retail quarter at King’s Cross and its female team, this evening event will hear from Argent’s Anna Strongman and Heatherwick Studio’s Tamsin Green as they discuss the innovative project in depth.

Continuing the successful integration of historic and contemporary elements exemplified in past years at King’s Cross Central, the sculptural design of Coal Drops Yard restores two industrial buildings to house restaurants, bars and over 50 shops, together with cultural activities. How did the project evolve from coal shed to retail destination?
