The Evolution of London Mapped Out

“The visualisation, originally created for the Almost Lost exhibition by the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (Casa), explores the development of the city through the evolution of the road network and preserved buildings.

Unlike other historical cities such as Athens or Rome, where there is an obvious patchwork of areas from different periods, London’s scheduled sites and listed buildings are individual structures, in many cases assembled gradually by parts from many different periods. Those who try to locate different historic structures will know that these features appear as pieces of different jigsaw puzzles, scattered across the contemporary city”.
