Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Summer 2019 brought the UK’s hottest day on record, but barbecue summers aren’t the only upshot of the climate crisis: sea levels in the Thames Estuary could rise by up to six feet by 2100. Can better buildings help us deal with hotter temperatures and unstable weather?

That’s the question the Architecture Foundation and speakers including Extinction Rebellion are asking at this evening of discussion, assisted by designer Alberte Lauridsen’s specially commissioned image of London being engulfed by the sea: a watery worst-case scenario to make even diehard denialists stop and think.
