Batsford Books x make architects Presents: Unbuilt Book Talk & Summer Drinks Party

27/07/2022 6:30 pm – 27/07/2022 10:00 pm | make Studio London, W1T 4JY

Join us this summer in Central London for an evening mixing architecture, ideas and informal drinks.

Each ticket includes complimentary wine, soft drinks and snacks.


Christopher Beanland will present his new book Unbuilt in a talk featuring rich visuals, as we go on a journey into how London, New York, Berlin, Glasgow, Tokyo and other world cities could have looked if the planners, architects and dreamers had their way. Find out about the Dome over Manhattan, Tokyo’s city on the sea, the idea for an airport above King’s Cross Station and the plan to rip up London and build motorways all around the capital.


This is the story of how we thought the future would look – taking in technology, transport, leisure and some crazy plans. There will also be some laughs along the way as we look at the more light hearted and whimsical projects.

After Christopher’s talk there will be a discussion with our host and then your opportunity to ask any questions.

Books will be on sale and Christopher will be happy to sign yours.


After the main talk in make’s stunning HQ (a former underground car park) we’ll move into the sunny summer garden for a small party with wine and food.


We will be donating a portion of our profits from this event to charities helping civilians in Ukraine. Please also consider donating when you buy a ticket. Thanks.
