In the week that Londoners go to the polls to elect a new mayor, two of the most perceptive observers on the city’s development, John Lanchester and Rowan Moore, discuss the issues at stake.

John Lanchester has addressed the recent socio-economic transformation of London both as a journalist and as the author of Capital (2012), an epic novel set during the 2008 financial crisis which was recently adapted into a BBC television series.  Rowan Moore is the architecture critic of The Observer and the author of Slow Burn City: London in the Twenty First Century (2016).

Chaired by Professor Fran Tonkiss, the director of the LSE Cities Programme.
