Parkour (Andy Day)

On 19 May 2012 there was a half-day workshop where Assistant Curator of Photographs Justine Sambrook and freelance photographer Andy Day explored new ways of seeing and experiencing architecture through the medium of photography and the urban sport parkour.

The workshop began with a visit to the RIBA's world-class photographic archive and concluded with a hands-on session led by Day, during which participants had an opportunity to shoot on location with professional parkour athletes.

Themes explored in this workshop will be debated in a public panel discussion on 15 June 2012. The panel will be chaired by Professor Iain Borden. Andy Day and Justine Sambrook will be joined by Michael Stewart, who will discuss his MyStreet Project: 'Your story told through film. Where you are, who you are and how you live.'
