Watch London Evolve In This Animation

If you went to the Almost Lost exhibition you might already have seen this film, showing how London has grown since Roman times. Using the road network and historically protected sites and buildings, we can watch the city's evolution unfold (plus a haunting soundtrack).

The London Evolution Animation was made by Flora Roumpani and Polly Hudson and is yet another production from the incredible (and incredibly busy) Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL, in partnership with English Heritage, the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction  at Cambridge University and Museum of London Archaeology.

If you'd prefer to watch the film on a grander scale, or maybe in a more appropriate context, it'll be on permanent display at New London Architecture on Store Street.
