The eminent filmmaker Patrick Keiller discusses Nine Elms, an area of London on the South Bank currently undergoing transformation, in this series of events examining the past, present and future of London.

Keiller’s films include ‘London’ (1994), ‘Robinson in Space’ (1997) and ‘Robinson in Ruins’ (2010). The latter was followed in 2012 by a major exhibition at Tate Britain. Keiller, in conversation with writer and broadcaster Patrick Wright, discusses Nine Elms, which ‘until the 1970s was one of several places in London where one could find examples of a particular kind of engineers’ architecture: industrial structures with unusually striking forms, not unlike those that attracted the interest of artists and architects earlier in the century’.

Part of the London Festival of Architecture.
