For the record (Display)
Next Occurrence : 12 May 2021
It is important to make a graphic record of a city’s buildings before they succumb to unmaintainable old age or an unstoppable economic squeeze. But a camera alone cannot see behind high fences and disfiguring modern ‘improvements’ to the architects’ original concepts. See here, then, at a large scale and in colour, accurate drawings of an unusual selection of vintage treasures – some already lost – where every detail is restored to view. To return to their true character the assets we retain in our midst, yet underappreciate in their compromised state, is to diminish the threat of regrettable redevelopment.
