The City of London is undergoing a generational shift which will change not only the skyline of the capital, but also the attitudes held by individuals about the desirability of the Square Mile to work, live and visit. How is the urban public realm going to respond to these increased demands? The creation of more open public spaces is a prerequisite, but not the only objective - it will be accompanied by a greater number of initiatives aimed at enriching the user experience.Join City Architecture Forum for this fascinating panel discussion which will focus on cultural infrastructure in the City’s dense urban environment.  Moderator: Peter Murray New London Architecture. Panelists:  Stephen Barrett, RSHP, Michael Cassidy City of London / Art Crossrail; Mark Davey FutureCity; Lucy Musgrave Publica.
