At Home in Britain: Designing the House of Tomorrow | Opens May 18, recommended by Amelia Taylor-Hochberg
What better time to consider the future of housing typologies and cultures when London is in the midst of a housing crisis, "smart" technologies promise to revolutionize our domestic interactions, and the very notion of the family-unit is being rewritten? Taking the classic types of the flat, cottage and the terraced house as starting points, a selection of architects reinterpret these forms for tomorrow's homes. The free exhibition is coordinated with a three-part BBC4 series, looking at the history of the three housing types.
Instant City Reloaded – Southwark: Infiltration #2 | May 19, recommended by Nicholas Korody
Inspired by an Archigram project, "Instant City" is an initiative that seeks "to bring together disparate parts of society in art by means of provisional performance spaces." "Dada on Tour," a delegation of Zurich-based performers and artists, will infiltrate Underdog Art Gallery in Southwark with an inflatable tent. Should be hectic and fun!
