A major exhibition on the past,
present and future of the City of London
as a centre for international trade.
The Walbrook Building, London EC4
21 June to 9 September 2012
Tuesday - Sunday 11am to 5.30pm, Friday until 7pm
The Developing City
The Developing City Exhibition will look at how the physical environment of the City - its buildings, public spaces and culture have helped it to thrive as a major business centre. The Black Death, the Great Fire, the Blitz brought pestilence and destruction, yet the City survived and rebuilt itself. Today it faces major challenges as a result of the financial meltdown, the changing nature of financial institutions and drive for more sustainable buildings. How will these factors impact on the physical fabric of the City? What will it be like to work in the Square Mile in 2050?
A series of seminars, talks and walks about development in the City will accompany the exhibition.
Friday 7 September, 13.15-13.45
Peter Murray, curator of The Developing City, will lead a guided tour of the exhibition, discussing the key themes, and answering your questions.
This event is free but registration is recommended
