Have you ever wondered why Fitzrovia is a hub for medial institutions, and why they occupy certain buildings? Then this talk is for you...

About this event

In this talk, art and architectural historian Ann-Marie Akehurst will discuss the many homes of the Association of Anaesthetists since their establishment in 1932.

Intertwined with histories of the expansion of early modern London and the rise of the medical professions, she will explore some of the decision making behind the choice of location for the Association, from Lincoln’s Inn Fields to 21 Portland Place, and set that within the context of why certain areas of London were considered more desirable by medical institutions.
