It is very exciting to see this photo of the Segal exhibition being built in the AA gallery. We first suggested the idea of an exhibition over a year ago so it is brilliant to finally see it taking shape. Thank you to Lee Regan and Sebastian Craig and Vanessa Norwood of the AA Gallery for producing this show.
The structure seen here is going to be a section of a Segal house showing the key features of a Segal self-build building. The exhibition will also have never-before-seen Segal furniture, archive films, photos and drawings. The Turner-prize winning designers Assemble are also showing a Segal-inspired piece.
It has all been put together with the help of John Segal (Walter Segal's son), and architect Jon Broome, who worked with Segal. It is sponsored by Architype, an architecture firm set up by Jon Broome and Bob Hayes who both worked with Segal and continue his work.
So if you are a Segal fan make sure you get to see it. Entry is free.
It is on from 16th Jan-13th Feb.
The AA gallery is the gallery of the Architectural Association school of Architecture, 38 Bedford Square, WC1B 3ES
This blog is about the life and work of architect Walter Segal. I am a fan of Segal and the current administrator of this website. I life in one of the Segal Self-build houses in Lewisham and want more people to know about and be inspired by this unusual architect.
