There was a full house last night for this year’s Banister Fletcher Lecture given by Ben Derbyshire, President of the RIBA. We hope to have a write-up of the talk on the blog very soon, along with the slides from the presentation.
Ben mentioned several papers and projects in his talk, and we thought it would be useful to make some of those links available.
- The London Society ‘Green Sprawl‘ paper is now out of print, but you can download a PDF here>>
- Ben’s paper ‘Building Greater London‘ can also be downloaded (or you can buy a print copy) here>>
- There’s more on the ‘Supurbia‘ concept on HTA Design’s site here>>
- The RIBA paper ‘Ten Characteristics of Places Where People Want to Live’ is to be found here>>
We’d also be very interested to find out your views about the London Society and ways in which we can improve what we do – if you have ten minutes to spare, please have a look at our survey.
And don’t forget to nominate London’s Worst Public Sculpture – more information on that can be found here.
Finally, if you’re not currently a member of the Society we’d love you to join. Full details are here.
