30 June - 10 July

13:00 -16:30

An interactive exhibition packed with drawings by architect and artist Anna Gibb.

Can buildings change the world? Do they have the power to shape our response to our biggest challenges.. climate emergency, pandemic, social injustice, conflict?

We invite you to explore your ideas through the act of drawing and focus your pen and your mind on the tower as a city-shaping tool. It is, after all, the tall buildings which reflect the age in which they’re built.. medieval church spires, industrial revolution chimneys, post-war housing blocks, glassy office buildings, what’s next?

Whether you are 4 or 94, we want to hear your thoughts and see your marks. Drawing is thinking, drawing is playing, drawing is action! Pens, pencils, paints, building blocks and junk will be provided to help realise your visior.

At the end of the exhibition, our ideas will be brought together in a new city skyline - a collaborative city of the future.

Open daily from 1pm to 4:30pm. Closed Monday and Tuesday.

*With support from Art in the Docks, Bow Arts and Notting Hill Genesis.
