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.
This summer the RIBA presents works from our ‘Constructing Communities’ Open Call as part of the London Festival of Architecture, across sites in Peckham and at 66 Portland Place.
The RIBA is pleased to present a selection of works submitted for our 'Constructing Communities' open call, as part of London Festival of Architecture during June 2016. The brief set out to find works by large to small practices and students, responding to ideas of how architecture can influence or create communities. The works selected from the open call are exhibited in two sites across London over the summer, in Peckham as well as our headquarters at 66 Portland Place.
The exhibition presented at Peckham Levels demonstrates the diversity of approaches by RIBA members, as well as the variety of possibilities in response to the idea of architecture and community. We are delighted to show projects that engage with the Peckham Coal Line project, alternative approaches to engaging with democracy, and an app that joins people up with unused spaces in the city – to name a few.
The exhibition of longlisted projects will take place at Peckham Levels, a creative hub hosting a series of cultural events over the summer. Exhibiting Practices and individuals include: BAT Studio, CAT2, De Rosee SA, DH Liberty, Esther Frimpong + Zena Moore, George King Architects, MSMR, Nancy Jackson, NG Architects, Noor + Mills, YOU + PEA, Tate Harmer, The Village, and Weston Williamson + Partners. At the RIBA Headquarters at 66 Portland Place, three 1:1 installations will be realised by three practices.
‘Constructing Communities’ at Peckham Levels (Rye Lane, SE15) will be open 2 to 30 June, Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm to 9pm, Saturdays and Sundays from midday to 6pm.
