BDP urban planner and ex-journalist Fiona Sibley is one of the speakers for a balloon debate in our London studio asking what is the most important representation of the city in culture in literature, non-fiction or art form. Fiona will join a panel including architectural journalist Tim Abrahams, arts consultant Manick Govinda, novelist John King, built environment consultant Shelagh McNerney, Academy of Ideas partnerships manager Jacob Reynolds, writer Vicky Richardson, artist Karim Samuels and Wilkinson Eyre director Chris Wilkinson. Each presenter will have four minutes to make a case for his or her chosen work followed by questions from the audience leading to a final vote and announcement of the winner. The debate will be chaired by Austin Williams who is the director of Future Cities Project, senior lecturer at Kingston School of Art and Honorary Research Fellow in architecture at XJTLU university in Suzhou, China.
