FRAGMENTS OF TOMORROW – Modernism Lost & Found in The City of London
Saturday 05 December, 10.30 – 12.30
£12 BOOK HERE
After the Second World War, London looked to the future. Recovering from the destruction of the blitz and seeking to banish the decrepid Victorian city, in the 1950s and 60s it embraced modernism and embarked on a great project of architectural reinvention. Taking the best ideas from Europe and its native sons, while also trying to keep pace with America, the Square Mile remade itself through new landscapes for a confident new age.
From modernist icons and brutalist skyscrapers to aerial walkways and bogus roadways and curious underpasses, this walk pulls together the fragments of the City’s once bold future to chart the architecture, buildings and remnants of what was and what might’ve been.
