Thursday 2 June
11am-9pm  at MSMR Architects, The Old School,  Exton Street;
MSMR Architects is hosting a London Festival of Architecture
event. MSMR invites you to their studio in Waterloo to view
an exhibition and listen to a talk looking at their
communities through neighbourhoods, routes, transportation,
landmarks, landscape, buildings � and the spaces in between.
Mapping the answers to questions such as "where have you
come from?" and "how did you get here?" generates a symbolic
representation of our working community. Extending this idea
to the practice's work output, including design choices and
the resulting buildings, MSMR maps these elements, the
process, and team connections to illustrate and measure the
effect they have on the wider community. The day will
conclude with a short talk about "Mapping the MSMR
Community" at 6pm, followed by a BBQ at 6.30pm. Booking for
the exhibition is not required, but is essential for the
free talk and evening BBQ as spaces are limited.
