The Developing City

Thursday 21 June – Sunday 9 September 2012

A major exhibition on the past, present and future of the City of London as a centre for international trade.

The Developing City exhibition will look at how the physical environment of the City - its buildings, public spaces and culture have helped it to thrive as a major business centre. The Black Death, the Great Fire, the Blitz brought pestilence and destruction, yet the City survived and rebuilt itself. Today it faces major challenges as a result of the financial meltdown and the changing nature of financial institutions. How will this impact on the physical fabric of the City? What will it be like to work in the Square Mile in 2050?

series of seminars, talks and walks about development in the City will accompany the exhibition.
