23.02.2015Of and For Turner Contemporary: Writings on a Building

Students of the Critical Writing in Art and Design course at the Royal College of Art have produced a collection of texts on their impressions of Turner Contemporary in Margate.

The 11 pieces bring together new approaches to writing in relation to architecture, drawing particularly on the experience of spending time with a working building.

In his foreword, David Chipperfield writes 'These essays put architecture in what I believe to be its rightful place; not always liked but with the capacity to be liked, not its own world but part of ours.’
