Throughout the City of London’s 2000 year history its built environment has been shaped by constant social, political and economic change. From the turbulence of fire, plague, war and revolution to the boom and bust of modern capitalism upheaval is ingrained in its very fabric. Comparing and contrasting historic and contemporary architecture this discussion will look at how architects and city planners past and present have reacted to these fluctuations building and re building the city from the ashes. Each speaker will choose to focus on a different key moment in history to review and celebrate the developing City.
Chaired by Peter Murray the panel also includes Alec Foreshaw author of ‘New City: Contemporary Architecture in the City of London' (2013) and Alastair Moss partner of City law firm Memery Crystal.
Price includes welcome drinks and canapés.
