Event description
An OnStreet walk exploring the architecture, planning and controversy through one of London's greenest urban grids, Bloomsbury.

About this event

Long associated as a place of artists, bohemians and scholars, Bloomsbury is a neighbourhood alive with architecture and abundant with green. Laid out with aristocratic mansions at the city's edge in the 17th century, it leapt northwards in the 1800s through a sequence of new streets, grand terraces and leafy squares to create one of London's greenest urban grids that in the 20th century became the frontline of some of architecture's most intense battles. In this walk, The London Ambler square hops the grid and meaders under the verdant canopy to reveal a network of grand and intimate spaces that incubate some of the capital's greatest buildings, most radical moves and long standing urban controversies.
