The City Centre is a hub for learning about the square mile, championing its meaning and value. The exhibitions and events programmes are inspired by the unique history, heritage and culture of the City.
Introduce your class to the world of the built environment by visiting the home of a fascinating 1:500 scale architectural model of the square mile. A detailed record of the fabric of London, it includes every existing building as well revealing a glimpse into the future showing new developments that will be added to London’s skyline.
Taught sessions use the model as a starting point for learning about the City in relation to history, geography, art, citizenship and STEM. The City Centre offers model-making and digital design workshops and industry insight days with the chance to meet professionals working as architects, engineers, urban planners, surveyors, property lawyers and project managers. The model is accompanied by a well-equipped workshop space and days of architectural discovery, exploring new and emerging buildings in the City, are also available.
