This week, as the London Festival of Architecture surges on, explore the impact of architecture on medical facilities, see the work of the next generation of architects, or visit an interpretation of the primitive HUT for the modern age. Make sure you go along to 'Don't Move Improve' this weekend if you are thinking about some DIY, and get out over the weekend to your local celebrations for 'The Great Get Together'… because after all, what is architecture without a community of people?
Opening this week is
one of the most exciting summer shows in the architectural calendar, that of
the Bartlett School of Architecture. Free of charge, open to the public, and
this year more accessible than ever with student-led tours including one in British
Sign Language; this is one summer show not to be missed.
This exhibition, which is open throughout the summer, focuses on the 'radical moment' of Postmodernism's early period. Pivotal works by the movement's leading figures will be featured. Including drawings, models, images, and actual fragments of buildings by Piers Gough, James Stirling, and Terry Farrell.
New London Architecture is holding another 'Don't Move Improve' day, with exhibitions, design surgeries, family workshops, and great coffee. The free advice received from architects on these days can make a real difference in how attendees use their spaces, and can be an invaluable starter in home improvement.
Pixel HUT returns in its third iteration, this time to Marloborough Sports Garden and reflects the need for shelter and our obsession with technology and 'connection'. While in the park, be sure to visit Interpreted Identities which also shares the space.
Join a guided tour of an architectural history of health through medical London, lead by the Royal College of Physicians forming part of their season of 'medicine and architecture' on Thursday. Or join New London Architecture as key stakeholders explore the current changes and future transformations of London's medical facilities.
With speakers including Paul Finch, and Vicky Richardson (London School of Architecture). This talk is one of a series of provocative discussions, and focuses on the idea of 'architectural export' in the face of Brexit. Pondering on how the UK will (or won't) adapt and where this leaves our architects, this evening will be fuelled by a cocktail or two.
