This exhibition provides, through some thirty works, rather different views of buildings ancient and modern.  Beattie, by contrasting old and new, challenges why so many new buildings have been constructed since the Millennium and what is going to be done to preserve the historic ones that are part of London’s history and the story of the people who work or live there.
