Common Place

‘Common Place'
Tuesday 13 June , 6 –8 pm
University of Westminster
35 Marylebone Road, London NW1 5LS. 
Places are free but booking will be required.  

Five speakers explore personal and embodied experiences of domestic and leisure places in this London Festival of Architecture event. We journey beyond the materiality of these places and reflect upon meanings, dreams, practices and memories. We invite you to explore the ‘so much more’ associated with the places that you encounter every day.  

We start at home with Sam Johnson Schlee who encourages us to pay attention to objects in the living room. Then we move on to meet Rebecca May Johnson as she mixes critical thought and recipes in the kitchen. We join Ro Spankie in the study as she investigates the objects in Freud’s desk. Nancy Stevenson takes us outside to consider experiences of ‘out-dwelling’ in wooden huts and sheds.  Finally, Karen Fitzsimon takes us onto the allotment to contemplate growing food as a way of being. 

Questions, refreshments and book signings at the end of the session. 
Copies of 'Beach Hut People' will be available at launch price of £10.  

Chaired by Maja Jovic. Curated by Nancy Stevenson.
