London Transport Museum events for London Festival of Architecture

If you have an interest in urban development and design and can get to Covent Garden tonight (3rd July 2008) or Monday 9th July there are two interesting talks at the
London Transport Museum.

First up is Malcolm Smith who's the Design Director at Arup's Integrated Urbanism Unit. He'll be revealling his pioneering work on Chinese eco-city Dongtan near Shanghai, which will run entirely on renewable energy. "By 2050 up to half a million residents will live in a zero emissions city - proving environmentally sustainable urban living is possible.".

Cubic Theatre London Transport MuseumThen on Monday Wayne Hemingway, designer and founder of Red or Dead, will talk about his passion for creating affordable and well-designed homes.

The talks are both held at the very cool Cubic Theatre, London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, WC2E 7BB. They run from 19.30-20.30 & tickets are £10 adults, £8 concessions.
