The panel will discuss the urban flows, both material and intangible, that make up London. In exploring the dynamic between financialisation and urban process, Caroline Knowles will highlight the global conduits running through the city supporting the lifestyles of the city’s über-wealthy inhabitants. Nick Tyler and Riccardo di Clemente will demonstrate how improved understandings of human behaviour, and the use of innovative data sources, can help in rethinking the city and its transport systems in more inclusive ways.

Panel chair: Paul Finch, Editorial Director, Architect's Journal


  • Caroline Knowles, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths, and Programme Director of the British Academy's Cities and Infrastructure Programme
  • Nick Tyler, Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering, UCL
  • Riccardo di Clemente, Newton International Fellow of the Royal Society, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, UCL

This event is a collaboration between IGP's Directors Seminar and Thinkspace.
