Nicholas Hawksmoor was an English architect and leading figure of the English Baroque style in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. He was born to a yeoman family in Nottinghamshire and developed a fascination for architecture early on. While a teenager, he travelled to London where he trained under the master of the time, Christopher Wren. Unlike his contemporaries, such as James Gibbs and Thomas Archer, he never travelled abroad to be influenced by Italianate fashions - his Roman classical style was gained entirely through the study of books. He went on to design some of the most notable and outstanding buildings of the period, including parts of Westminster Abbey and seven extraordinary City churches after the Great Fire.

IAIN SINCLAIR has lived in Hackney since 1969. His many London books include Downriver, Lights out for the Territory, London Orbital and Edge of the Orison. His classic 'Lud Heat', explored mysterious cartographic connections between the six Hawksmoor churches in London and acted as one of the catalysts for the London psychogeographic movement. His talk celebrates the 40th anniversary of its publication and his 72nd birthday.
