Like all major cities, the fabric of London’s identity, the community of nine million Londoners who call it home, is forever in flux. While many move in, out and around the capital at will, many more find their movements directed by forces beyond their control.
The displacement of people in London is threatening the core of one of our most fundamental rights – housing – and disproportionately impacts the most vulnerable communities, who are fighting to have their voices heard by those in charge.
In collaboration with Focus E15, a campaign initiated by a group of young mothers from Newham fighting the impending eviction from their homes, Architecture for Humanity’s exhibition explores the history of displacement in London and its recurring root cause. Our installation maps forced movement in London over the past 70 years while revealing the stories of the communities affected by it.
The exhibition culminates in an interactive installation that allows visitors to mark where they live in London and trace their journey to and away from the capital, creating a complex web movements, both voluntary and involuntary.
Please join us at our private view from 6pm on Wednesday13th June. Please register via the Eventbrite Link on this page.
