Programme of events
Early morning talks and debates on the history and future of development in the Square Mile.
Peter Murray, curator of The Developing City, leads guided tours of the exhibition, discussing the key themes, and answering your questions. Tours take place on alternate Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes, plus some Saturdays.
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.
An opportunity to see inside some of the City’s best new buildings, led by the developers, architects and engineers involved, on Wednesday lunchtimes.
Evening talks, lectures and debates followed by drinks and networking, with some of the key figures involved in documenting or shaping the City.
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.
