This week has some fantastic events from emerging architects and thinkers. From films exploring and documenting political unrest, to delving into the history of the concrete which surrounds us in London.
The fourth talk in this series comes from multidisciplinary curator and architectural designer James Taylor-Foster. The series questions the meaning and means of curating architecture in modern times. This talk in particular will focus on the implications of, and strategies behind, the display of architecture.
If you haven't got plans for St Patrick's day, why not start them with an architectural photo walk? The walk will focus on the Robin Hood Gardens social housing project, an example of Brutalism which is perhaps the most discussed in recent times.
This walking tour through the Brutalist streets of Croydon is being lead by the RISEgallery in partnership with National Trust. Croydon is perhaps one of the only places in the UK where you can still sense the post-war optimism through these hulking concrete structures.
Focusing on the most radical and significant mass timber solutions and structures, this exhibition includes interviews from key participants as well as international examples of timber projects. The models, images, and text forming the bulk of this exhibition show the scope of wood and the latest advancements in the surrounding technology.
This walking tour of Bethnal Green's exemplary examples of social housing touches on its roots in Victorian philanthropy to the Modernist council housing which stands today. The tour will show how the borough council was radically forward-thinking in its decision-making.
This UK premiere of this sensitive portrait of the Calais 'jungle' and community will be shown next Tuesday at the Barbican, organised by the Architecture Foundation. The film's focus is on the inhabitants, and the way of life within such a unique temporary city.
This event is sold out, but if you have a free evening tonight, why not put yourself on the waiting list? This debate, where drinks and historians will mix to convince the audience on which London buildings should be praised and which should be razed, is set to be a lively one.
