Modelling London: The Practice Network at Somerset House

As part of our summer exhibition CONNECT, we exhibited 30 models of London projects by practices in our network. The display, designed by LSA Founding Graduate Alaric Campbell-Garratt of Assorted Studio, featured models made from a range of materials and scales.

From Squire and Partners’ Brixton Windmill, a 200 year old functioning windmill that has been converted into a community hall, to a masterplan of Hackney Wick by Karakusevic Carson Architects, and Foster + Partners redevelopment of the Snowdon Aviary at London Zoo, the projects represent the diversity of practice the LSA is working with.

CONNECT took place at Somerset House New Wing from 22 – 26 June.
