The London Society Architecture School : Change and the Public Good / Designs on Democracy
10 June 2021
This year’s Architecture School will examine moments of change in London that were underpinned by notions of public good with a series of three talks exploring how development for the benefit of people not profit has influenced and continues to inform the built fabric of the city.
DESIGNS ON DEMOCRACY
Architectural historian Neal Shasore discusses one of the most hotly contested debates of early twentieth-century London’s development: cross-river communication. Arguments about the fate of two bridges in particular: the Hungerford Railway Bridge at Charing Cross and Waterloo Bridge, drew in a myriad of different interests and professions including The London Society which fought vigorously and imaginatively for improved amenity for Londoners.
