LSE Cities and the London Festival of Architecture hosted a lecture by Suzanne Hall on ‘Multilingual Streets: London’s litmus strips of change’, followed by discussion and drinks. Suzanne discussed how accelerated change is expressed in the cultural and economic life of London’s streets. Focusing on Peckham Rye Lane and the Walworth Road, the urban dimensions of spatial and social exchange was explored. Suzanne leads the ’Ordinary Streets’ research project at LSE Cities, and is author of City, Street and Citizen: The measure of the ordinary (Routledge, 2012).
Suzi Hall is Director of the Cities Programme, Senior Research Associate at LSE Cities and Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science.
