Join us on a daytrip to Shatwell Farm in Somerset to explore a remarkable collection of buildings designed by architects including Stephen Taylor, Hugh Strange, Clancy Moore & Peter Smithson.
The farmyard houses the archives of Drawing Matter, an organisation that explores the role of drawing in architectural thought and practice. In 2006, a programme of gradual redevelopment was launched, renovating the farm piece by piece through collaborations with architects from the U.K. and beyond.
The return trip to London will also stop off at Alison & Peter Smithson's celebrated Pavilion at Upper Lawn near Tisbury. The house was completed by the Smitshons for their own weekend occupation in 1962. In 2004 its present owners undertook an extensive refurbishment designed by Sergison Bates.
