London is not only the capital of Great Britain, it’s also the largest city in Europe and one of the strongest economical powerhouses worldwide, attracting more than 30 million visitors annually (2008). Many of them no doubt visit Tate Modern (Herzog & de Meuron) – some probably by crossing the Thames via the Millennium Bridge (Foster + Partners). Considering all the first-class tourist attractions it has to offer, one wonders if visitors will remember London as a future-oriented city, or if most of them identify it primarily with the glory days of a bygone empire – with Queen Victoria and Victorian buildings, or Harrods and Selfridges. They may, with some irony, reach the conclusion that while they’re grateful for the wonderful time they’ve had thanks to intelligent and long-term investments made in architecture 150 years ago, it remains to be seen, when looking at some of the newer buildings, whether their grandchildren will still want to visit London.
