Paper+ Architects stage London Paper Salon
May 24 2013
Inspired by the non-conformist thinking of the Moscow Paper Architects the day-long programme of discussion, drawing and debate was opened by Anna Gibb and Ross Anderson who had both travelled to Russia to study the group and subsequently formed Paper+ Architects.
Earlier this year the inaugural Paper Salon discussed the future of George Square but this time round attention switched to the infamous Heygate estate.
Commenting on this process Anderson remarked: “We were inspired by the Paper Architects working free from restriction and convention and engaging with each other intellectually.”
Tutor Alan Dunlop added: “I’m interested in drawing as a means of communicating architecture as a consequence of my experience of 20 years teaching young students about how to develop their architecture.
“A hand-drawing for me is much more valuable as a piece of art rather than a way of communicating architecture with a computer generated image.”
