A New Landmark for Aldgate : Exhibition

18 June - 4 July

Following an International design competition organised by The Architecture Foundation, a selection of entries to design a new landmark for Aldgate will be displayed as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2010. Sited on the location of the historic Ald-Gate, the landmark will be a signal that the City welcomes its neighbours rather than tries to keep them out. Historically, Aldgate was known as ‘Ale-Gate', so called because it was the only gateway open to all.

2010 will mark the 250th anniversary of the destruction of the City gates; as such the new Aldgate landmark will celebrate openness, diversity and the City's role as an international trading centre. It will also help to define the identity of the rapidly changing Aldgate area and assist in its regeneration.
