To mark 25 years of Sarah Wigglesworth Architects (SWA), the award-winning practice will host an exhibition celebrating some of its most memorable built projects.
The exhibition will take place from 27 March to 4 April 2020 at Anise Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in South London, specialising in architecture and the built environment.
The exhibition surveys the practice’s past projects to inform its future. Members of the SWA studio have each chosen a favourite project through which to explore an aspect of sustainability. Each piece of artwork responds to the selected theme using different forms of representation and appropriate media. This method reflects the inclusive nature of the practice’s working process in which each project is regarded as an opportunity for research and an exploration of creative solutions to its unique challenges.

Featured projects include:

– Highbury Roundhouse – charcoal on paper; stop frame animation
– Siobhan Davies Dance Studios – mixed media on paper
– Deborah House – casting
– Haycroft Gardens – recipes, infusions and dried essences
– Stock Orchard Street – recycled chair and leather
– Mellor Primary School – cardboard and paint
– Kingsgate School – ink transfer on wood
– Ebbsfleet masterplan – video
– Sandal Magna Community Primary School – relief sculpture in mixed media.

As an environmentally focused practice, sustainability is at the heart of what SWA does. The practice makes sure that it finds the right solutions for each client by assessing their budget, desire for innovation and maintenance capability. From design strategy to detailing, material specification and the importance of health & wellbeing, the practice aims to deliver a green solution that is valued by its clients.

The practice is based in Stock Orchard Street, in an award winning eco-logical building, which functions as both the office and the home of founding director, Sarah Wigglesworth. This building is a living, ongoing research project.

SWA25 Exhibition runs – Friday 27th March – Saturday 4th April 11am – 5pm
