Amongst other things, we will discover why England’s greatest architect died alone and forgotten amid the ruins of one of his greatest creations. How poets and novelists have found the river and narrow medieval street pattern of London so inspiring.
The approach in our classroom discussions will be interdisciplinary, using a variety of sources to explore and understand the history of London from a cultural perspective, investigating how many of its key buildings and institutions came into existence, and discovering some of the notable figures that gave life to a city that has been described by Stephen Fry, as ‘proudly barbaric, but deeply civilised’.
This course will comprise ten lunchtime sessions held in the classroom at Imperial College, South Kensington. Each session is based around a specific object or place.
