Rowan Moore London’s Changing Skyline: the city that ate itself
Rowan Moore is the architecture critic of the Observer and was named Critic of the Year at the UK press awards 2014.
His recent book Slow Burn City addresses the extraordinary transformations of modern London while placing it in the context of the city’s tradition of creative responses to crises.
He was formerly the Director of the Architecture Foundation and editor of Blueprint. His award-winning book Why We Build was published by Picador in 2012.
Rowan has written extensively about London from its universally admired public spaces to the explosion of new buildings in the last twenty years. In this talk, he will consider the impact of these developments for all of us who live and work in this astonishing city that is acknowledged as home to more of the world’s great architects than perhaps any other.
