Release Podcast: Walking Tour London Kings Cross with Louis MorenoTuesday, 04 October 2022
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
During this London walk from Euston Station to King's Cross/St Pancras, urban geographer Louis Moreno reflects on the process of urban renewal and what that means at the level of policy, the level of stated ambitions, the technological imperatives, etc. But he also thinks about this in a more theoretical way: what does this kind of biological metaphor of regeneration mean, when you think about the change, the economic restructuring, but also the cultural transformation that comes with the implementation of these policy processes? And what does a place that’s designed by the urban form of financial capital – real estate development companies –, look like? It is the environment of the kind that you look at in Kings Cross, where the walk ends in a place called Coaldrops Yard.
