Dan Cruickshank is an architectural historian, broadcaster, author, and long-time campaigner for heritage. In the 1970s, Cruickshank was a founding member of Save Britain’s Heritage, which successfully campaigned to rescue East London’s Georgian houses, including in Spitalfields, where he still lives. Cruickshank is active in The Georgian Group, is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and regularly writes and presents television programmes on the history of British and world architecture. He will talk about London’s great monument to the railway age – the ill-fated Euston Arch – and current proposals to rebuild it. The talk will be an illustrated journey through this and other examples of recreated ancient buildings.
