Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Join UCL Urban Laboratory and the Museum of London for the public launch of Urban Pamphleteer #7: LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, past, present and future.
Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change.
This issue gathers perspectives, provocations and vignettes on London’s LGBTQ+ night-time spaces, past, present and future, with a focus on the different tactics being used to queer night-space. Featuring a diversity of examples that together suggest how and why different venues, events and clusters are produced; how, when and why they have opened or closed; the scenes that have recently emerged, or are imagined, and how these connect with historical ones, and with other places.
Edited by Ben Campkin, Laura Marshall, Rebecca Ross. Designed by Guglielmo Rossi.
