Tuesday - late evening opening until 9.30pm

*Please note that the exhibition will be closed on
Saturday 15 June.

*On Wednesday 19 June the exhibition will close at the earlier time of 3.30pm.

Please also note that during weekdays, construction work will be taking place for the new ground floor gallery opening in spring 2014, which will showcase original material from the RIBA collections. Therefore there may be some background noise during your visit.

Reflecting on 25 years in practice, Hawkins\Brown believes that the future of architecture lies in recognising and cherishing the value of the 'social' - a major driver behind our basic human needs to live, work and play together and a foundation stone for architecture.

As the practice has demonstrated through its many projects, the 'social' forms neighbourhoods and communities; creates space for learning and research; shapes ambitious transport projects and builds environments for working collectively and collaboratively.

This exhibition celebrates the Hawkins\Brown ethos and highlights the key ideas critical to its thinking.
