London's Anatomy: Victorian Buildings from Top to Toe

London’s Victorian buildings are marvels of engineering, invention and artifice. They include iconic buildings famous around the world but also local theatres, schools, libraries and town halls in every part of London, crafted with extraordinary attention to detail.

This conference will look at their actual fabrication in brick, terracotta, glass and stone- the creation of bold decorative detail and the technologies and transportation that made new buildings on this scale possible. It offers an imaginative means of understanding London’s buildings, conjuring the skills and labour of a now lost workforce to reveal the human scale of Victorian London.
