Maggie's Culture Crawl

02/10/2017 08:10:25

On Friday 29th November a team of SDS employees walked 10 miles across London for Maggie’s Culture Crawl. Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, SDS are proud to have Maggie’s as a charity partner.


Joining the SDS team were employees from New London Architecture, Afroditi Krassa Studio, Materials Council, Studio Jenny Jones and YourStudio. The Culture Crawl led 220 walkers through London visiting iconic cultural landmarks. The first stop was the Victoria & Albert museum where we watched a beautiful opera performance. Next we walked onto the south side of the river to Foster + Partners studio where we viewed extraordinary project models and enjoyed sweet treats.

The longest stint of the walk was next heading for the Royal Academy of Arts where we recharged with crepes whilst viewing Jasper Johns ‘Something Resembling Truth’ exhibition.

Nearing the end of the walk we visited Maggie’s St Bart’s Centre in North East London, built within the grounds of St Bartholomew’s Hospital. This particular centre has been designed by world-renowned architect Steven Holl and once established is expected to receive 20,000 visits a year from people affected by cancer. The Culture Crawl was a huge success and greatly enjoyed by all, especially in aid of such a fantastic charity.
