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.
Philip Webb, friend and colleague of William Morris, was the most significant architect of the Arts and Crafts movement in England. Drawing on the V&A and RIBA’s unparalleled collection of designs and archives, this display brings together his diverse projects and roles as architect and designer.
It focuses on Webb’s architectural schemes, including Red House, Clouds and Arisaig, and relates them to some of his most recognisable work-- the furniture and interior decoration he designed for Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Marking the centenary of his death, this display will examine Webb’s influences and methods as he pioneered a new way of thinking about building design and preservation.
Displays complement our permanent collections; there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
