Abstract

Curation, design and build of exhibition at NLA (New London Architecture), Store Street London with architectural historian, Jeremy Melvin. One of the highlights of the show was JRA’s vision for The City of London’s future; an innovative master plan of the City, which capitalises on the river Thames’ architectural potential and includes it in the structural landscape. A theme weaving throughout this exhibition was the concept of contextual civic modernism, an approach John Robertson promotes in the practice’s work and was successfully articulated here through models, drawings, and photographs. The exhibition showed drawings and models never before exhibited, and included interviews and films with the achitects about their practice, and particular the role of drawing. The exhibition ran from 3rd-30th October 2013 at The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT
