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.
Blueprint for Living is a group exhibition that takes place on site at the Fitzhugh Estate in Wandsworth, London. The estate was built in 1956 and designed by Sir John Leslie Martin, principal architect of the Royal Festival Hall.
Through archival and contemporary photography and moving image, the exhibition explores concepts of home, space, community, architecture, post-war British modernism, and social housing.
The exhibition has been conceived to coincide with the estate's 60th anniversary in 2016 and as an artistic response to photographs of the estate taken in 1956 and uncovered at the RIBA photographic archive.
Contemporary photographs by Sharon O’Neill and moving image by Marc Isaacs will be exhibited alongside archive images of the estate from the Architectural Press Archive / RIBA Collections to present a narrative of a post war housing estate as it celebrates its 60th anniversary.
The Exhibition runs from 31 May - 4 June 2016, 10 am - 6 pm daily. For full details of events and talks go to the Blueprint for Living website.
