London's Grand Designs- Building a Capital City, 1675 to 1986 by London Metropolitan Archives


London is home to some of the world's most striking architecture and innovative engineering. Whether driven by divine purpose or the needs of a growing population, architects and engineers have shaped the identity of the city and the lives of Londoners.


Starting with Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral, this exhibition delves into the historical collections at London Metropolitan Archives to present the blueprints, drawings and photographs that record the development of some of London’s greatest buildings and structures.
