What are the hallmarks of conservative, liberal or left-wing architecture? The Architecture Club traces the historical and the current role of ideology in architecture and urban planning.

How much politics is there in architecture? To accompany the exhibition ‘Architecture and the Cold War’, a prominent panel discusses the influence of ideologies on what is built. What are the socio-political mindsets that develop between building for the common good and investor-driven development? Where and in what context is planning done? Where do the roots lie of political polarisation between a social housing project and property? What is the connexion between right-wing populism, and the urban fabric and conservation? These and many other questions are addressed at the event.
