‘Texture in London’, developed in collaboration with EQUITONE and the London Festival of Architecture, is a new series of short films celebrating the feel and emotional impact of the surfaces we encounter in our capital. A cross-section of industry voices share personal takes on texture in London’s built environment. Released over coming weeks, the films will provide an intriguing window into London’s eclectic built fabric. They’ll also present a survey of some of the textures that make up the nuanced granularity of our city – an aspect of architecture that is perhaps more important than ever at a time when so many of us are feeling digitally remote. First out of the blocks is Tom Bloxham with his thoughts on the brutal, beautiful hammered concrete at the Barbican.
