The History of Temple Bar with  Peter Murray OBE

All event fees are listed net of VAT.

The South East Branch of Women in Property is delighted to announce a new event exploring the history of Temple Bar - the Gateway to the City with Peter Murray OBE

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, Temple Bar was completed in 1672, the first of his many buildings in the Square Mile. Originally sited at the west end of Fleet Street it was demolished in 1878 to make way for the increasing levels of traffic. It was re-erected in Theobalds Park in Hertfordshire, returning a century later to the City in its present location in Paternoster Square.

Peter will discuss its fascinating and gory history as well as its present-day role as the home of the Architects’ Livery Company, an education centre promoting diversity in the built environment professions and a modern gateway for the growing number of visitors to the City.

Peter trained as an architect but has spent most of his career writing, curating and commenting on architecture rather than practicing it. He was editor of Building Design and the RIBA Journal; founder of Blueprint Magazine, the London Festival of Architecture and Co-Founder of NLA.

Wine and soft drinks will be served after the presentation. Please note there will be no food at this event.

Both rooms are fully accessible to all users.

Members and non-members of all genders are welcome.
