Visitors to RIBA at 66 Portland Place are being encouraged to explore whether we can ever consider a building or place as truly complete, with a new exhibition which follows the history of the Becontree Estate in East London.
The new commission from visual artist Verity-Jane Keefe marks the centenary of the Becontree Estate, reflecting on the contemporary architectural reality of the estate, once the largest example of social housing in Europe. Keefe has created a new film and a series of spatial and decorative details found during her time spent in the area, capturing the essence of Becontree and its residents today.
Lived in Architecture – Becontree at 100 is part of a larger RIBA celebration created in partnership with Create London and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to celebrate the east London estate and discuss its historical significance.
