Potentially interesting talk and debate at the LSE later this month with three significant figures, Lord Adonis, Norman Foster, and Deyan Sudjic.

Most LSE events are simple turn up and go in, but this is ticketed, with 500 tickets being released at noon on Monday.

The three speakers:

Lord Adonis is the former Transport Secretary and is now heading the National Infrastructure Commission, an independent agency to assess Britain’s future infrastructure requirements.

Norman Foster pretty much needs no introduction.

Deyan Sudjic is Director of the Design Museum in London.

During the event, Norman Foster will focus on the role that design can play in tackling social, economic and environmental futures, providing the context for the examination of the broader challenges of using infrastructure to help improve quality of life and the environment in cities in the UK and abroad.

There will then be a panel debate including the two other speakers.

This event is one of the series of five public Global Debates celebrating ten years of the Urban Age programme. The debates discuss five core themes that have been the focus of research and debate at the Urban Age since 2005.


The event takes place at 6:30pm on 26th November, is free and open to all but a ticket is required. Tickets will be available from noon on 16 November at Designing Urban Infrastructure.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
