Future forecasts

Those attending The Future of London Festival, at the Museum of London a couple of weeks ago, were treated to a vast array of opinions and speakers - ranging from Bill Dunster to Terry Farrell.

The debate started with Prince Charles' former adviser, Jules Lubbock, encouraging the growth of suburbia, and ended with former Peabody Trust director, Dickon Robinson, arguing for Campus London - a university city. Though many of the sessions left listeners with more questions than answers, a highlight of the conference was the discussion between Amanda Levete of Future Systems and Massimiliano Fuksas about the nature of design. And it was the ever-charming Italian architect who gave the clearest insight into what may be around the corner for the capital: 'There are no more avant-gardes, ' he said. 'The future of London is today - not tomorrow.'
