The fall and rise of Clerkenwell

Chaired by Architecture critic, writer and broadcaster, Tom Dyckhoff, this debate uncovers the essential ingredients for a creative community, by charting the transformation of this quintessential case study from declined industrial quarter in the 1980s to today's cultural powerhouse. We bring together key figures from this journey to uncover the conditions necessary to create a successful post-industrial neighbourhood, mirroring the UK's own reinvention from manufacturing to service economy.
