The Flickr Travelogues – architectural eye-candy from the Jubilee Line Extension (London) Pt1

By Flickr Travelogues

One of my favourite architectural memories from my time living in London was stumbling across the architecture of the Jubilee Line Extension (JLE) of the London Underground system – there is nothing quite like having an architectural experience without any form of warning whatsoever. Visiting the well-photographed Barcelona Pavilion, for example, had no such sharp edge of unprepared wonder.

So, I offer you some great photography from stations along the JLE, from Westminster to Canada Water in this installment, with more to come later. I hope this doesn’t spoil anyone’s future ‘moments’, but suspect that everyone has seen images, if not having actually visited the stations, by now…

James Shaw and Squint Opera

By AC EVENTS

Our apologies: this event has been cancelled. We hope to be able to reschedule it for another time in the future.  This Thursday 29th January: a coming event that I’m sure you’ll be keen to come along to.  James Shaw, formerly of Wellington and now working with Squint Opera in London, is in town long enough for us to convince him to give a talk. The work he has been doing with Squint is fantastic, especially on the evocation of a drowned London – well worth a look. Venue to be confirmed.
