Event description

Description

The Adelphi was to be the Adam brothers’ most celebrated urban development – a vast, complex of roads, townhouses, shops and even a subterranean roadway. It was expected to bring them great wealth, and to immortalise their names on the streets of London. Instead, it took them to the edge of bankruptcy and tarnished their reputations forever.

Join Dr Colin Thom, Senior Historian at the University College London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, for this evening talk on the Adelphi project, from its hopeful inception to its eventual demise. Guests will be able to enjoy a drink on arrival and a private view of the exhibition Robert Adam’s London (30 November 2016 - 11 March 2017).
