Alex Ho - Barbican Centre Lakeside

Barbican Centre Lakeside

A spot of calm in the Barbican

A British-Chinese composer based in London whose work explores narratives of diasporic identity. Alex Ho wrote a piece for solo soprano a capella, interpreted by French-born and London-based soprano Héloïse Werner.

Hidden away in the middle of the City, the Barbican lakeside terrace is a welcome little spot of calm. Take in the best views of the surrounding architecture, including St. Giles’ Church and the monolithic Gilbert House, propped up from the lakeside by gravitydefying concrete columns. Sit back and enjoy

the serenity with a coff ee or a bite to eat from the Barbican Kitchen, and while away the hours before you explore the rest of the centre.
