2014 - 2016

This programme of lectures, seminars and conferences addressed the central question of why some forms of architecture promote prosperity while others are linked to vicious effects. In providing answers to this question, the programme aimed to deliver a clearer understanding of human motivation and ambition, both domestically and in the workplace.

The History of Capitalism series aimed to investigate the origins and development of a movement of thought and endeavour that has transformed the human condition. Delivered through lectures, seminars and publications, the series seeks to assess case studies in business history and the individual biographies of thinkers, writers and inventors as well as describing particular periods in the histories of cities, states and nations.

THE 'CULTURE OF PROSPERITY' PROGRAMME

2014 - 2016

This series offered a progress report on the idea of freedom. The history of the developed west has been shaped by the increased degree of freedom exercised by individuals who have been able to escape the constraints that prevailed in the past. The programme's lecturers drew their conclusions from the study of the past while also seeking to find ways of removing the obstacles to freedom’s progress.
