Guided by Victor Callister who is the Deputy Director of Architecture and Built Environment at Design Council Cabe. He previously worked at the City of London as a planner and urban designer, latterly building a team around him that specialised in transforming the City's public realm. As the Assistant Director in the City's Department of Built Environment, Victor oversaw the implementation of transformative and award winning schemes in one of the most complex, valuable and densely developed parts of London. Victor also founded Sculpture in the City, a Civic Trust award winning programme which brings sculpture from world renowned artists and places them in streets and spaces at the heart of the City. During this tour, we will explore the City of London to understand its architectural evolution and how new and old buildings can be successfully juxtaposed in a very dense environment whilst exploring back streets and hidden enclaves to understand its origins and history.
We will meet outside the southern exit of Chancery Lane Station/Cafe Nero (intersection of Staple Inn Buildings and the A40), City of London.
