Is London pedestrian friendly? Are London architects and planners embracing walking as part of a sustainable future? Sir Terry Farrell, of Farrells and Edward Jones, of Dixon Jones will discuss their current pedestrian schemes, with a focus on long-term aspirations for a walkable city and obstacles to its achievement.
(Having programmed the above, I am likely to say that they will be informative, insightful talks that will get you thinking about London and sustainability in new ways. The good news is that the talks will be information, insightful..I'll stop.
