We are proud to invite John Grindrod to present an evening dedicated to London icons since the 1980s. Sat within the shadow of the Millennium Dome, John will take us on a revelatory tour of the buildings that encapsulate the dreams and aspirations of our culture, drawing on the research he undertook for his new book: Iconicon: A Journey Around the Landmark Buildings of Contemporary Britain. Whether modest or monumental, these projects offer a living history of Britain, symbols of the forces that have shaped our modern landscape and icons in their own right.
John will be joined by a series of experts from the London built environment and we will be kindly hosted in the NOW Gallery, part of the revitalised Greenwich Peninsula.
