Are you interested in seeing and understanding more about the architecture of London? Join us on an informative walk with an architect as your guide. Our group tours explore the past, present and future of London’s architecture and urbanism. We specialise in giving insight on some of the most interesting and influential modern buildings. We also see how these buildings are shaped by their historical and social context.
Our scheduled tours are aimed at London residents and visitors who are interested in architecture and design and who want to experience a walking tour that goes beyond the tourist routes.
We aim to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible. None of our routes are very strenuous but if walking, please wear sensible footwear and be prepared for the British weather.
I am Ross Logie. I founded Seeing Architecture because of my fascination with London and its architectural heritage. As a practising architect, I am interested in why and how buildings are built.
During my years living in London, I have been a senior designer at several firms. I was also a visiting lecturer at National University of Singapore and have written numerous articles for architectural publications. I am an active member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). I currently run my own practice, Ross Logie Architecture. Since 2016, I have arranged numerous, unique architectural tours in London and around. I aim to make all tours enjoyable and informative for you.
