On architecture

Will Self is going to be exploring the theme of capital in relation to new architecture in the city, in a lecture entitled When Liquid turns to Solid: the Spatialisation of Capital Flows in 21st Century London at Kings Place next Monday. This will be followed by a conversation with Andy Beckett and a Q&A.
