Old Vic Voices Off - The Future of London's Skyline


Listen to this podcast featuring two real-life Master Builders, Eric Parry and Julia Barfield as they talk to Deyan Sudjic (Director of the Design Museum) about the dramatically changing London skyline.

At a time when the Capitals housing is ever scarcer, should we embrace a move to the skies? Or do these towers provide nothing but opportunities for foreign investment, and destroy the charm of the city?

Eric Parry is the architect of 1 Undershaft, a skyscraper which, once completed, at over 1,000ft, will be the tallest in the city. Julia Barfield has already played a major part in defining the skyline, having conceived and designed The London Eye, with partner, David Marks.
