Week 44 13 Feature #37 RIBA Exhibition at Somerset House - Forgotten Spaces


Forgotten Spaces is an ideas competition organised by the RIBA, exploring ideas for abandoned and neglected spaces across the capital. The idea being to identify potential spaces for reuse and generate ideas for improvement and integration. In keeping with the theme, the exhibition is located inside the crypt and corridors of Somerset House and features 26 selected proposals ranging from creative reuse of old telephone boxes as bicycle repair stations to a curtain veil for the BT tower and street lights powered by gas from the underground sewers.
