1666 and all that – Wren, the Great Fire and its global legacies
This year’s Wren Talk is part of the Wren300 celebrations and will be given by Professor Elizabeth McKellar, author of The birth of modern London: the development and design of the city, on Tuesday 17th October at St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street.
McKellar will consider how London was remodelled in the aftermath of the Great Fire of London in 1666, exploring Wren’s contribution, the influence of his City plan, and key buildings in places as diverse as Washington, Pretoria and New Delhi.
This year’s lecture is the twelfth in the series. McKellar is Professor Emerita in Architecture and Design History at the Open University, and president of the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.
The Talk and Q&A session will be chaired by Paul Finch, Programme Director of the World Architecture Festival.
Registration for this event is free, but we hope you might consider making a suggested donation of £10 towards the upkeep and maintenance of this historic building. Find out how on our donations page.
