(Un)Common trajectories. Post-war modernist housing in Ukraine and the UK. Past | [War|] Future

13 June 2023

18:00 -21:00

This event is linked to – and acts as a vernisage for – the exhibition “Fragile Brutalism” taking place as part of the London Festival of Architecture, a homage to the Ukrainian modernist prefabricated buildings known as “panelki”, whose destruction has become a haunting symbol of the brutality endured by civilians in the wake of the Russian-Ukrainian war. Following an introduction to the exhibition, it will explore the shared and divergent experiences of modernist (social) housing in the UK and Ukraine, including its history, present and possible future(s), featuring Jane Pavitt (Zaha Hadid Foundation), Michael Romyn (Queen Mary University of London), Stephen Taylor Architects and other guests).
