TRAVELLING INTO THE FUTURE: WORK IN PROGRESS
This panel discussion uses the theme of ‘Work in Progress’ to examine travel and London’s transport systems, taking in cycle superhighways, Crossrail, telecommuting, speed and mobility amongst other aspects of urban travel. The evening brings together Tim Fendley, who has revolutionised the navigation of the city through Legible London, and Sam Pearce, who hopes to radically alter cycling through his Loopwheel design. They will be joined by Design Museum Director Deyan Sudjic, in a session chaired by Alastair Donald, a researcher on mobility and space and the British Council’s Project Director for the British Pavilion at Venice Architecture Biennale. Tickets include entry to the Designs of the Year exhibition before the talk begins.
