London has become the quintessential global city. Money from all over the world flows through it; its land and homes are tradable commodities; and it is a nexus for the world's migrant populations, rich and poor. London's landscape is the product of both destructive changes and creative, often controversial, public interventions – from the green belt to council housing and the Clean Air Act.

Hear Rowan Moore, the Observer architecture critic and author of the acclaimed book Slow Burn City, talk to Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva about the history and future of London's urban transformation – and how and why the city must change.
