A Shared Utopia: The Truth About Co-housing

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM @ Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD

In an evening challenging the preconceptions of co-housing, a panel examines why co-housing has an image problem. A way of living that was pioneering in 1960’s Denmark, it is increasingly propagated as an affordable model in the UK’s volatile housing landscape. Could it be an appealing choice embraced by the Brits, instead of a forced economic solution?

Private View – Rory Menage ‘New Works’

6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ The Averard Hotel, 10 Lancaster Gate, London W2 3LH

Eleven heads, cast in bronze and iron, unspeaking and inscrutable. Three torsos, like beaten breastplates. These are Rory Menage’s fallen kings, empresses, warriors and sentinels, sculptures forged by a close reading ofOzymandias, Percy Bysshe Shelley’s sonnet-memorial to the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramesses II.
