Please join us as we welcome journalist and author Christopher Beanland who will present his new book Unbuilt.


Featuring rich visuals, Christopher takes us on a journey into how London, New York, Berlin, Glasgow, Tokyo and other world cities could have looked if the planners, architects and dreamers had their way. Find out about the Dome over Manhattan, Tokyo's city on the sea, the idea for an airport above King's Cross Station and the plan to rip up London and build motorways all around the capital.


Christopher's earlier book, Concrete Concept, references our own references Boston City Hall, Rudolph's Government Services Centre, Kahn's Art and Architecture Building at Yale, among other giants of New England concrete Modernism.


‘Told in clean, clear prose accompanied by collages, sketches, models and maps, Beanland’s book plumbs the archives of 20th-century plans for alternate visions of our cities’―Monocle Weekend Newsletter
