Look out for special one-off events taking place throughout the exhibition, including a guided Foster/Rogers walk, examining the architecture of two great architectural practices in the City; and the Walbrook Walkabout, following the route of one of London’s most significant lost rivers to examine current archeological sites, led by archaeologists from the Museum of London Archaeology.
Wednesday 5 September, 13.15-14.30 The City in 2050 Walking Tour
Take a step into the future on this free guided walking tour around the City of London, exploring how the City might look in 2050. Led by leading global architects and planners Gensler, the walk will examine future visions for five London districts, using Gensler's panoramic visualisation app.
Take a peek at the fusion of innovation and creativity characterised by the tech media and life sciences sectors which will co-exist and thrive in proximity to the well established legal and banking industries. See also how the City will expand beyond its historic walls embracing the post war 'ring of opportunity' which will encompass the vibrant fringe districts of Aldgate, Shoreditch, Barbican, Smithfield and the Upper Thames Street. And hear about the pioneering infrastructure, new public parks and world class transport improvements that will ensure that the City of London becomes the ultimate Business Capital of the World.
