On an architectural tour of the Laban Building you can expect to experience Herzog and de Meuron's inspiring spaces and chaotic beauty, created through collaboration with the visual artist Michael Craig-Martin. The tour will explore spaces filled with vivid colour and dynamic form. These include dance studios, interlocking corridors, interior courtyards and a performing arts health suite - all centred around the main theatre space - the heart of the building.
The duration of the tour is normally up to one hour. The meeting point is at reception, at the main entrance. Contact us to book a place on a tour.
The standard charge for the tour is £12 per person with a £8 concession for students and senior citizens which you can pay online or on the day of the tour either by cash, cheque or debit card.
