Join the architects featured in the ‘At Home in Britain’ exhibition, as they describe their approach to designing a house for tomorrow. Followed by a gallery tour with curators Justine Sambrook and Anna Holsgrove.
At Home in Britain re-examines how we live and speculates on the future of housing in Britain. Taking the cottage, the terraced house and the flat as a starting point and using RIBA Collections as stimulus, six newly commissioned works from contemporary architecture practices Jamie Fobert Architects, Mae, Maison Edouard François, Mecanoo, Studio Weave and vPPR transform these three familiar housing types to reflect the way we live and work in the 21st century.
With a combination of UK based and international practices to speculate on the future of British housing. The six chosen practices have been set a design brief asking them to reimagine the cottage, terraced house or flat and given a curated selection of drawings and photographs from the RIBA Collection to inspire their responses.
A BBC and RIBA partnership
The season will be accompanied by a three-part BBC4 television series, presented by Dan Cruickshank, looking at the history of the cottage, terrace and flat.
