Partnering Developing City exhibition

MOLA team

We are delighted to be an exhibition partner of this summer’s major public exhibition The Developing City, which will explore the past, present and future of the City of London as a centre for international trade.

This headline event organised by New London Architecture is running at the Walbrook Building, EC4, from 21 June. The Developing City (#DevCity) highlights the role of the planning decisions that shaped the capital’s success as one of the most important global trading centres, and examines how the buildings, streets and public spaces have defined the City over the centuries.

It will also look ahead to 2050, presenting a series of visions of the City of the future, examining how its built form may adapt in response to our changing governance, climate change and banking regulation.


Peter Murray, curator of The Developing City exhibition, which is organised by NLA – London’s Centre For Built Environment – in association with the City Of London Corporation, says the transformation has been incredible.

“The City of London is a remarkable organism,” he says. “It is a global financial capital operating within a Medieval street pattern with governance dating back to the 13th century. It is, simply, the most resilient city on Earth.”

The exhibition runs from 21 June to 9 September in the Walbrook Building, which is opposite Cannon Street Station and was designed by Foster and Partners. A full programme – including a MOLA event, lectures and hosted walks – will be announced shortly. Admission is free and entry (Tuesday to Sunday) will be from 11am to 5.30pm, with late opening on Fridays until 7pm.
