The Developing City
The Walbrook Building, London EC4
21st June to 9th September 2012
The Developing City Exhibition will look at how the physical environment of the City of London – 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?
Entry is FREE and the exhibition is open every day except Mondays from 11.00am to 5.30pm with extended opening hours on Fridays until 7.00pm.
A series of seminars, talks and walks about development in the City will accompany the exhibition: you can find out more on the website here.
