EVENTS/EXHIBITIONS: London Festival of Architecture

This years London festival of architecture which will run through-out June brings with it a series of interesting events for any architecture fan. Below I have listed the events which may be of interest to fans of Brutalist architecture. Unfortunately the rather inadequate booklet does not give a description of the events so I am going by the names! If you have any other suggestions let me know.  


'The Brutalist Playground' 
where: RIBA 
when: 10 June -16 August (10am-5pm) 

'The Barbican Exhibition: Building a Landmark (already featured)'
when: 25 May - 29 November (in Barbican opening times)
where: Barbican foyer at the Barbican centre

'TACK-ON-TOURS: The Ugliest Buildings in London' 
where: Hoax Theatre
when: 6,7,13,14,20,21,27,28 June 11am and 3pm each day 
- also inevitably featuring many brutalist buildings!

'Rise and Fall of the Council Estate'
where: RIBA
when: 23 June (7-8.40pm) 
- Possibly of interest, it will give a wider context to the rise of fall of the brutalist style in Council estates.
