London’s Knowledge Quarter: Commissions and Omissions in Bloomsbury and Beyond

 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
 £10

The Survey of London celebrates its 130th anniversary in 2024 with the launch of an annual lecture tackling an aspect of the city’s built environment where past, present and future meet, and embracing the principle that the city belongs to all of us.

Their first guest speaker – the eminent writer and broadcaster Gillian Darley – will investigate the University of London’s site since 1894: a story, now as then, of individual and institutional vision, inspirational patronage and extraordinary outcomes. In the lead-up to UCL’s bicentennial celebrations in 2026, Darley’s lecture will situate the college in its wider contexts and communities. There are mighty buildings in the picture, but there is also a light-hearted cast in the wings...

This event also celebrates the work of students on the Bartlett School of Architecture’s MA in Architecture and Historic Urban Environments with the screening of a short film specially curated and created by them. Our students will reflect on their experiences of learning in London as a laboratory, and how the Survey of London’s mission and methods have helped them to ask new questions about this city and others around the world.
