The Impact of Buildings

21 January - 19 February
Organized by: Allies and Morrison
85 Southwark Street

In 2016 Allies and Morrison completed a new home for Hampstead School of Art at the heart of the Kidderpore Green project in Hampstead.


To mark the school’s first anniversary in its new home, Allies and Morrison issued the school an open call to students on the theme of addressing architecture’s impact on the cityscape and landscape. More than 60 works were submitted and a small jury within the practice chose a selection of the works displayed in our Southwark Street gallery space.


All works are by students of Hampstead School of Art and cover a range of media and styles, illustrating a variety of different approaches to the impact of buildings. Some artists have approaching the theme directly, featuring studies of London landmarks, such as in Patrick Blower’s diptych The Shard, or have used their art to investigate the changes in particular areas of the city currently undergoing development, as in Jane Daniell’s Cross Trail, or they have chosen to respond in a more conceptual manner, such as Charlotte Shinerock’s consideration of the view of the city from the sky, in Beneath the Stars.


The Impact of Buildings is open weekdays, 10am-5pm at Allies and Morrison, 85 Southwark Street, London SE1 0HX.


Those interested in purchasing any of the works on display, should contact Hampstead School of Art on info@hsoa.org.uk or 020 7794 1439.
