Video: Alain de Botton says “London is Becoming a Bad Version of Dubai”


“London is on the verge of being ruined for all future generations,” says Swiss philosopher Alain de Botton.

“With a whopping 260 towers in the pipeline no area is safe, as planners, property developers and the mayor’s office commit crimes against beauty to create fun buildings.”

In a film for The Guardian De Botton explains why he believes we’re right to be nervous – and how we can stop this “clear desecration” of the UK’s capital city.
