Created as part of the Jonathan Tuckey Design retrospective in 2016, Building on the Built has relaunched with a program of exhibitions and talks for 2018 with the aim of promoting architectural work connected to existing structures. The relaunch will start with an exhibition by the renowned architectural photographer James Brittain, titled Revisited: Habitat 67. James will present a series of large-scale color photographs documenting Montreal's Habitat 67, the residential complex designed by the Israeli- Canadian architect Moshe Safdie as the Canadian Pavilion for the World Exposition of 1967.
To accompany the exhibition, James Brittain and the architectural curator, Vanessa Norwood, will introduce the exhibition and discuss the role of architectural photography and its ability to capture the experience of architecture at 6:30pm on Tuesday 6th February. Places are limited, if you would like to attend please contact RSVP@buildingonthebuilt.org.
The Building on the Built series will continue in May 2018 with an exhibition and talk by Dublin-based practice Carson and Crushell Architects. Further exhibitions planned for 2018 include work by Fred Scott, author of On Altering Architecture, and Slovenian practice Ambient, who present work undertaken at Ljubljana Castle.
