A wonderful Walter Segal Exhibition

I went to the Architectural Association today for a talk by Jon Broome to open an exhibition there about Walter Segal’s life and work

Half the room focuses on his early work which did not include self build but did include some furniture that he built.P1040272

There are several beautiful Segal drawings of his visions.

P1040279

This half of the room  also was encased in  a skeleton of a Walter Segal’s self build building

There was  a model  that had been in a cupboard since 1988 and had just been found.

In the other side of the room, which focuses on Walter Segal today,  is a new model using Walter Segal’s principles  showing what his buildings might look like in another’s hands.

Jon is working with RUSS a very exciting community led self build group in  South London. The design also reflects Segal’s influence.  Have a look at their project here: http://www.theruss.org/
