The RCA Society together with Thames & Hudson Art Book Publishers awards a prize with a total value of £3500 to 24 graduating students of the Royal College of Art. Each individual prize is £150 worth of books of a winners own choice from T&H publications. This year 24 individual prizes were, again, awarded – representing one prize for each discipline practised in the College. The criteria for selection is for ‘work that is innovative and challenges the boundaries of art and design”.
The international design team, O’Donnell + Tuomey, has been selected to design and build the new home for London’s “Photographers’ Gallery”. Sheila O’Donnell, a graduate of the RCA School of Architecture (1978 – 1980) and her partner John Tuomey have built up an international reputation for cultural and educational projects and produce spectacular buildings that enhance visitors’ experiences while expanding the language of modernism. The Gallery will be located at 16 – 18 Ramillies Street - just off Oxford Street, in the heart of London’s Soho district.
Excel 22 - 23 November 2006 The recent annual Thames Gateway Forum held at east London’s Excel Centre in November attracted record numbers of people, organisations and businesses involved in ‘regeneration’. They all came together for two days to discuss how far the massive re-development of land alongside the easterly section of the River Thames had progressed. Amongst them was a group of RCA Society members who also wanted to see what had happened since last year's event.
It's surprising how many RCA Society members live in Kent and nearby East Sussex. Equally surprising was the number of people who gathered together to go to the Annual Air show. Once again, our membership secretary, Doreen Wilcockson, who (conveniently) lives near Woodchurch, generously opened her house to us all for the day and directed us to the AirShow. The weather has a habit of being wonderful for these airshows - and this year was no exception. It was a perfect day to watch airplanes of all ages 'loop the loop' and do dare devillish tricks against a perfect sky for taking photos.
