About this Event

Celebrate City Building Week! Join us for a free screening of City Dreamers followed by a short discussion on the role of women in city-building. Doors open at 6:30, light refreshments provided. Everyone welcome!

Proudly presented in partnership with City of London Planning Department, Urban League of London, London Society of Architects, and Women & Politics.

City Dreamers is a film about our changing urban environment and four trailblazing women - Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown - who have been working, observing and thinking about the transformations shaping the cities of today and tomorrow for over 70 years.

City Dreamers is above all inspired by what has united these four women throughout their careers: the “dream” of a fundamentally human and inclusive city.

The challenges facing our cities have not changed much since then. Instead, they are scaling up and becoming increasingly complex as our cities grow at an accelerating pace. What will our cities look like? What will it be like to live in them?

The screening will be followed by an informal discussion about the roles and perspectives of women in making cities more sustainable and inclusive. Our conversation with these outstanding female city-builders will be led by moderator Christine Dirks:

  • Architect Alison Hannay OAA MRAIC — principal & partner of Cornerstone Architecture
  • Urban planner Britt O’Hagan MCIP RPP — Manager, City Building & Design, City of London
  • Heritage advocate Genet Hodder — former president ACO London and Heritage London Foundation
  • Landscape architect Jodi Liptrot OALA CSLA — principal & owner of Jodi Liptrot Landscapes

We look forward to seeing you there!
