POWER & PALAZZOS - The Architecture of Old Money

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 13th Apr 2024

 £13.70

In the 19th century, London was the world’s pre-eminent trading city. Standing at the heart of the burgeoning British Empire, the power house of this operation was The City and its commercial investments extended across the globe. Emulating the prestige of older civilisations, financial institutions used architecture to confirm their status and a grand suite of neo-classical exchanges, palace-style banks and temple-like offices remade the Square Mile with spectacularly hybridised variations on Athens, Rome, Venice and Florence. Weaving a route between The City’s best surviving 19th and early 20th century commercial palazzos (palaces), this walk explores the architecture and ornament of old money, but also its legacy on the modern world today.
