We had our first peek into spring over the weekend, and as we move into the final week of February, it's apparent that we're really getting into 2018. This week is the last opportunity to visit Zaha Hadid Architects' exhibition, “Walkable London”, a proposal of a full-scale network of pedestrian routes for the capital.
With the renewed global awareness of plastic (thanks, David Attenborough), the effort to eradicate single use products and to safeguard resources is bigger than ever before. Simultaneously, we are facing increasing social and economical risks. What then do we think of luxury? Is the accessibility of these brands, products, and lifestyle a sustainable model of consumption?
February's Tate Late sees the art institute joining the nationwide celebrations of the 100 year anniversary of passing of the Representation of People Act. In line with this, there will be talks, tours and workshops surrounding this social history.
Perhaps best known
for his influential book, Architecture Depends, and his radical, pioneering
home at 9 Stock Orchard Street ('Straw Bale House'), Jeremy Till continues to
question architecture, especially the way in which the education of the
profession is structured. A fantastic and charismatic speaker, this talk is not
to be missed.
Returning this year is a full day of design surgeries, workshops, walks, and inspiration on how to better use the space you live in. 'Don't Move, Improve' is an invaluable opportunity to seek FREE advice from industry professionals.
Brutalism, which is loved by the general public more and more every day, has had an interesting and divisive history since its 1950s hayday. This journey over the years is shown through this series of talks, workshops, tours and exhibition. The private view on 22nd February will also have Jonathan Meades and John Grindrod as guest speakers.
