6.30 – 8.00pm, 3 June 2014
Lecture Theatre 1, Darwin Building, Royal College of Art
The history of modern architecture is the history of its circulation, from photography, journals, and exhibitions to film, advertising and tourism. Modern financial capitalism similarly exists only through the constant circulation of capital and credit. This opening talk places the circulation of finance, its incessant mobility, in relation to its effect on the architecture and urban form of contemporary London.
