Architectural Review Adventure Playground

Two academics from the Bartlett School of Architecture are featured in the September 2013 edition of The Architectural Review.

Niall McLaughlin, Visiting Professor at the Bartlett and Co-tutor of MArch Unit 17, reports on the historically downcast Skid Row in Los Angeles. The article highlights the history of the famous block, with particular focus on the consistent problem of homelessness and temporary accommodation. It features in the magazine’s larger report on architectural experimentation in the west coast city. Niall McLaughlin is currently shortlisted in the 2013 RIBA Stirling Prize due to be announced at the end of September.

Also in the current issue, Dr Barbara Penner, Senior Lecturer in Architectural History, writes a ‘Viewpoint’ on Roy Kozlovsky’s The Architecture of Childhood, drawing on her own experience as a parent.
