London as I see it

Join leading thinkers from the world of architecture and design as they imagine a new future for London, with specially commissioned talks taking place in the viewing platform of Western Europe’s tallest building – The Shard. 

Roma Agrawal, the engineer who designed the foundations and spire for the Shard, will champion the role of the engineer in London's future development and Leo Hollis, author of Cities Are Good for You, discusses the hot topic of tall buildings and how the invention of the passenger lift transformed the landscape of our cities. 

The event is chaired by architect and broadcaster Angela Brady. Each speaker will take questions and the event provides access to The View from The Shard with stunning panoramic views over the whole of London.
