Batsford Books x Make Architects presents: Unbuilt book talk & summer drinks party

Date 30.06.2022
Time 6.30 — 9.30 pm

Join us this summer with publisher Batsford Books at our London studio for an evening mixing architecture, ideas and informal drinks.

Christopher Beanland will present his new book ‘Unbuilt’ in a talk featuring rich visuals, as we go on a journey into how London, New York, Berlin, Glasgow, Tokyo and other world cities could have looked if the planners, architects and dreamers had their way. Find out about the Dome over Manhattan, Tokyo’s city on the sea, the idea for an airport above King’s Cross Station and the plan to rip up London and build motorways all around the capital.

Wednesday, 27 July, 2022 | 6:30-9:30 PM | Make Architects, 32 Cleveland Street, London, W1T 4JY


This is the story of how we thought the future would look – taking in technology, transport, leisure and some crazy plans. There will also be some laughs along the way as we look at the more light-hearted and whimsical projects. After Christopher’s talk, there will be a discussion with our host and then your opportunity to ask any questions. Books will be on sale and Christopher will be happy to sign yours.
