With a focus on the housing market and the future of living in London, the topics covered in this week's events vary from flying cars and future regeneration, to DIY and the celebration of existing structures. Be sure to take the time to visit exhibitions which are coming to a close within the next couple of weeks. Notably the Tate's showcase of David Hockney and the Saatchi Gallery's From Selfie to Self-Expression exhibitions are deserving of the attention they have gained since their openings earlier this year.
London's street markets are so often globally depicted as a hub of community activity, however how are they coping in today's climate?

Speakers, including planners and designers, delve into the possible futures of these 'organs of the city'.
