John Robertson Architects at Bankside Gallery
Developing City (John Robertson Architects)

This exhibition looks at how the Bankside-based firm has developed over the last two decades and in particular at the relationship of its buildings with their surroundings.

Visitors will be able to see a selection of sketches, drawings, photographs and models that have been brought together for the first time to explore the concept of contextual civic modernism, the central theme of the exhibition.

Since its formation in 1993, JRA has delivered a significant number of high quality buildings both in the UK and abroad. The exhibition seeks to capture the diverse nature of this portfolio, revealing the thinking behind large office and residential projects as well a range of sensitive restoration and redevelopment projects of significant historical and architectural value.

Some of the practice's current work such as the refurbishments of Bush House, the former home of BBC World Service on the Strand and Great Arthur House, the centrepiece of the Golden Lane Estate, will also feature in the exhibition alongside earlier projects such as the award-winning Daily Express Building on Fleet Street.
