About this event

Marking the release of ‘Iconicon’ - a new publication offering an enthralling journey around the Britain we have created since 1980: the horrors and delights, the triumphs and failures - The London Ambler with author John Grindrod lead a special walk re-reading the buildings and spaces of Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs.

In the 1980s London’s future was Docklands and in Thatcher’s free market city its epic riverine landscapes were there for the taking. Over 40 years later what was once the centre of London’s vast industrial port has been transformed into an architectural playground of high-tech skyscrapers, post-modern palazzos, gleaming apartments and sprawling underworlds.

This one-off event hosted in partnership with Faber journeys around the making of an icon of British urbanism, exploring the politics and business deals behind its creation, its varied architectural landscapes and their place in pop-culture.

Please note: Meeting and departure point will be confirmed shortly.
