Site of Cyberia, the world's first internet cafe, London, 2012, Alexei Schwab

A tour inspired by Alternative London.

Artist Katie Schwab and Alexei Schwab, Head of Programme at Future of London, lead a walk which starts outside what was once Cyberia, the world’s first internet café. The tour takes in sites that consider the relationships between post-war design, online communication, public space and military technologies. The walk will end with lunch provided at the YMCA Indian Student Hostel canteen. Companion is curated by UP Projects and Katie Schwab in partnership with the Museum of London for the London Festival of Architecture 2017. The tour is inspired by the 1970s counter-culture guide 'Alternative London' by Nicholas Saunders.
