Abstract or Description

Would Patrick Abercrombie turn in his grave? In the 1940s the reformer, planner and author of both the County of London Plan and the Greater London Plan had the temerity to attempt to rationalise London through mapping its future, choreographing city spaces and land uses down to the smallest plot sizes. In recent years various bullish authors writing about the future of the city have suggested that the capital will be the site of sustained employment and population growth over the next two decades. At the same time, they are much more vague than Abercrombie about its spatial configuration.
