Join us for the lecture series by Chris Rogers during the London Architecture Festival, hosted by PLP Architecture.

Where successive buildings have been erected on the same spot in the City of London for the same patron, the historic layering of site, client and architect is powerful. Step behind today’s façade as author Chris Rogers reveals fascinating architectural connections – including fragments, routes and even rooms – across three generations of rebuilding.

In this talk find out how every designer for private bank Rothschild on St Swithin’s Lane, from Thomas Marsh Nelson in Queen Victoria’s reign to contemporary starchitect Rem Koolhaas, has remembered the founder’s first premises there – a house with a courtyard, leased two hundred years ago.

So travel back in time this summer, and discover how memories of the Square Mile’s ownership, activities and pathways are preserved in its architecture.
