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.
‘A Journey Through Brutalism’ looks at Brutalist architecture; past, present and future, with a particular focus on the London Borough of Croydon and celebrating its architectural heritage, and is an artistic homage to the versatile and majestic architectural form through a wide range of media.

Jonathan Meades - writer/film-maker whose works include ’Bunkers, Brutalism, Bloodymindedness: Concrete Poetry’ and ‘Benbuilding - Mussolini, Monuments, Modernism and Marble’
