An OnStreet walk poring over, under and on-top-of the architectural monuments and what might've been of the postwar City of London

About this event

After the Second World War, London looked to the future. Recovering from the destruction of the blitz and seeking to banish the decrepid Victorian city, in the 1950s and 60s it embraced modernism and embarked on a great project of reinvention. Taking the best ideas from Europe, while trying to keep pace with America, the Square Mile remade itself through new buildings and landscapes fit for a confident new age. From modernist icons and brutalist skyscrapers to aerial walkways, bogus roadways and curious underpasses, this walk pulls together the fragments of the City’s once bold future to chart the architecture and spaces of what was and what might’ve been.

An OnStreet walk by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe.
