Change and the Public Good
This year’s Architecture School will examine moments of change in London that were underpinned by notions of public good.
Using the lens of urban infrastructure, civic activism and forms of architectural production, and taking in sewers, bridges and experimental business models, the three talks will explore how development for the benefit of people not profit has influenced and continues to inform the built fabric of the city.
Architect Graeme Sutherland launches Architecture School 2021 with a talk about what lies beneath our feet, tracing connections between Sir Joseph Bazalgette ’s extensive and transformational underground system of sewers in the 19th century - delivered in response to the ailing health of the city - and the All London Green Grid in the 21st century - a policy framework for green infrastructure across London, for the benefit of people and wildlife.
