You’ve still just got time to catch the exhibition that has been put together by The Architects Benevolent Society as part of the London Festival of Architecture. Hosted by current ABS President, Angela Brady OBE at her Brady Mallalieu Architects studio in Caledonian Road, the exhibition – “Let us take you by the hand and lead you through some memories of London” – runs until this Friday 30th June, 1-6pm. The exhibition was opened by Rowan Moore, author of ‘Slow Burn City’ and architecture critic for the Observer, who gave an interesting and insightful talk.
In line with LFA’s theme of Memory, the exhibition features a range of images depicting significant personal memories of buildings or views in London, created by our beneficiaries and supporters, including some eminent architects and artists. The images capture the diversity of architecture in London, innovations throughout the years, as well as the personal stories which give insight into why such a lasting memory was evoked. The exhibition has been curated by some talented architecture students from the University of Westminster. Read more at www.absnet.org.uk/LFA.
