Designing London: Understanding the Character of the City

04 June 18:30 - 19:30
Organized by: The London Society

Urban character is frequently cited by planners, developers and architects as something they wish to protect and enhance. But little or no effort is ever made to define urban character in specific or quantitative terms. 


Celebrating the launch of his new book Designing London, architect and critic Ike Ijeh will explore the key architectural ingredients forming London’s urban character and how these can be used to design a better city, discussing recent and proposed architectural projects which have either undermined or enhanced London’s character.
