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
Twin walking tours, led by the Blue Badge Guides, covering both eastern and western areas of the City, will look at the interplay of new and old architecture, demonstrating the complexity of inserting new ideas and developments into the dense urban fabric of the City’s medieval street-plan.
Wednesday 5 September, 18.00-19.30
Tracking the riverbank before heading landwards into the centre of a developing cluster of high-rise towers, this walk, led by the Blue Badge Guides, demonstrates the complexity of inserting massive 21st century developments into what is essentially still a tight medieval street plan. We look at the architecture, construction and environmental requirements of these buildings, and will see work by Foggo Associates, Rogers Stirk Harbour and Kohn Pedersen Fox amongst others.
