Remembering the Future
Carolyn Defrin, our Phd researcher, collaborated with Levitt Bernstein architects and artist Paul Burgess to create a film and architecture installation featuring Sycamore House and John Betts’ residents sharing memories of living in Hammersmith and their perspectives on housing.
This project featured in the June 2017 London Festival of Architecture as part of the ‘Where do you think you are?’ exhibition at St. Paul’s Centre in Hammersmith. It explored how the residents’ memories and perspectives on home and housing might impact architects’ designs for a new intergenerational housing scheme.
Residents featured in the artwork visit the exhibition with housing scheme managers, Jill and Cathy.
As residents share their stories, their memories fill the architectural models of their flats.
