Paper City: Urban Utopias showcases a selection of extraordinary drawings, collages and photomontages that have been produced for Blueprint as part of their back-page ‘Paper City’ commissions over the past three years.
Architects, designers, artists and illustrators including James Wines, Steven Appleby and Ian Ritchie RA articulate their ideas about the city, suggesting imaginative possibilities for the future. The exhibition also includes new commissions from Peter Cook RA, Chris Orr RA, Marc Atkins, Javier Mariscal and RA Schools students Inez de Coo and Rachael Champion.
The exhibition will display around 40 of the Paper City images; each of which will be printed as multiple copies and bound as pads. This unusual exhibition, designed by graphic designers Bibliotheque, allows visitors to tear off their favourite images from the pads and keep them.
