Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Long associated as a place of artists, bohemians and scholars, Bloomsbury is a neighbourhood alive with architecture and abundant with green.
Laid out first in the 17th century with aristocratic mansions, it leapt northwards in the 1800s through a sequence of new streets, grand terraces and leafy squares to create one of London's greenest urban grids that in the 20th century became the frontline of some of architecture's most intense battles.
In this walk, The London Ambler square hops the grid to reveal a network of grand and intimate green spaces that today incubates some of the capital's greatest buildings, radical moves and long standing controversies.
