A free ex­hi­bi­tion of 20th Cen­tury Bri­tish Hous­ing is show­ing at the Com­mu­nity Junc­tion at Hull’s Paragon Sta­tion, or­gan­ised by lo­cal ar­chi­tec­ture cen­tre Arc. It is open Mon­day-Fri­day from 10am-4pm, un­til Au­gust 9.

The im­age-based ex­hi­bi­tion was put to­gether by stu­dents from the for­mer Hull School of Ar­chi­tec­ture, and cu­rated by Pro­fes­sor Ian Colquhoun, an ar­chi­tect and town plan­ner whose pre­vi­ous roles in­clude Hull City Ar­chi­tect and Pro­fes­sor of Ar­chi­tec­ture at the Uni­ver­sity of Lin­colnshire and Hum­ber­side.

Based on Pro­fes­sor Colquhoun’s pub­li­ca­tion, RIBA Book of 20th Cen­tury Bri­tish Hous­ing, the 26 pan­els il­lus­trate the best of Bri­tish hous­ing built from 1900-2000, and places the ex­am­ples in the con­text of their po­lit­i­cal, so­cial, cul­tural and eco­nomic in­flu­ences.
