London in the 21st Century: Manifesto for LondonEvening Standard summary publication
Following the extraordinary success of the previous year's Architecture Foundation public forums, The Evening Standard Debates, the paper published A Manifesto for London based on the findings of the series.
The Debates began a consultation process about London and its built environment unique in the history of the capital. Over seven months a total of 15,000 Londoners turned up and talked, listened, shouted, heckled, clapped and stamped their feet expressing their opinions. They took delight in challenging the politicians, planners, architects and academics invited to address them. In doing so ideas emerged and agreement was reached on a number of proposals, all of which were contained in the Manifesto.
The complete supplement is available to read in the Resources tab.
