HELLO

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.

Employment Land Portfolio - Drawings of Tottenham

01 June - 07 June
Organized by: Lucinda Rogers
Heyne Tillett Steel
4 Pear Tree Court
London
EC1R 0DS

Lucinda Rogers will show a series of large works on paper that depict the workspaces, yards and skills of industrial manufacturing businesses and trades in Tottenham. The drawings will highlight the types of business that are directly threatened by Haringey Council's plans to promote high-volume housing development in places where people work, which it describes as "restructuring the borough's employment land portfolio". The plans will put many active businesses at risk, jeopardising diversity and local jobs. Lucinda Rogers draws directly from life in ink, crayon and watercolour and often portrays working environments and parts of cities that are seldom seen. Along with others including Cass Cities and the Just Space network she is involved in combating the pervasive, short-sighted approach to regeneration that sees London consuming its own assets in pursuit of housing unit numbers. Engineers Heyne Tillett Steel will host the exhibition at their new premises in Clerkenwell.

 

Open 11am - 5.30pm Weekdays, 12pm - 4pm Weekends.

 

The exhibition will move to Tottenham later in June. See website for details. www.lucindarogers.co.uk
