Century of housing goes on display
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.
