A Guide to the New Ruins of London

A Guide to the New Ruins of London.JPG
Owen Hatherley leads a walk examining the architecture of the boom years, exploring areas where regeneration and new wealth have led to glowing monuments to finance such as shopping complexes, riverside apartments and expensive lofts in former factories, and considering how the surrounding buildings are a comment on the urban environment in which we work, live and consume. The event is part of the 'London in Peril' season celebrating the £7 million refurbishment of the Bishopsgate Institute. Booking required.
