September 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Vida Walsh Centre, 2b Saltoun Road, Brixton
London, SW2 1EP United Kingdom
+ Google Map

50 years ago, plans were drawn up to demolish the centre of Brixton and replace it with new multi-level megastructures connected to clusters of 50-storey residential towers. The plans were ambitious, and well-illustrated. In this talk from Nicholas Weedon we take a trip through this brazenly optimistic vision, hear how it came about, how it vanished, and consequences from it that remain today. There will be free light refreshments.
