As part of Velorose’s ‘Commoners in Common’ exhibition, in partnership with Craftspace, which encourages visitors to map spaces that are both shared and personal, David Rosenberg will be leading an idiosyncratic tour of the Golden Lane Estate for the Twentieth Century Society, entitled ‘Uncommon Social Housing’. Expect the unexpected, including a flat viewing

David Rosenberg (architect, urban designer, communicator and gallerist) is a seasoned tour guide of the Barbican and Golden Lane Estates (both designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon), having led tours of both places for the Twentieth Century Society, The Getty Foundation, MSc and PhD students of UCL among others

David will be conducting a complementary tour of the Barbican Estate on Saturday 17 June
