The paintings are of specific areas of Trellick Tower's grade 2* listed curtilage (areas surrounding the building but part of the overall scheme) that are damaged. Damage can be a result of bad building practices (badly poured concrete leading to cracks or spalling) or vandalism - graffiti. All of the areas depicted are to be demolished to make way for more housing. This is controversial and contrary to their grade 2* listed status. Charlie has taken it upon himself to make paintings of these places (and other threatened buildings) to document them as accurately as possible whilst they still exist.
To celebrate the exhibition, and in conjunction with this year's London Festival of Architecture, we will be hosting a special evening on 22nd June; Charlie Warde in conversation with Stewart Dodd from Satellite Architects about all matters Brutalist.
When: Thursday 22nd of June 2017, 6:00 - 9:00pm
Where: Another Country - 18 Crawford Street, W1H 1BT
