Published in 1944, Abercrombie's Greater London Plan was designed to set out a grand vision for London's future development, espousing the benefits of a planned city and dealing with its growing population.
As London today is predicted to grow by over a million people within the next decade, NLA and RTPI London are inviting a series of speakers to review the lessons of Abercrombie's approach, and put forward their thoughts on what Abercrombie might do today to set out a long-term vision for London's future.
