MEOKO LIFESTYLE : After The Party: The Legacy Of Celebration exhibition

LIFE STYLE NO CLICK

One thing is true the world over: society loves a good celebration. Whether it’s a good ol’ fashioned rave, or a massive over-subscribed sporting event; people like to go all out. They have a good tidy, pretty up the place, buy lots of new things and generally make things look quite nice for the benefit of the neighbours.

What happens to the monuments and specialist venues purpose-built for these large-scale occasions after the revelry has been and gone? The latest exhibition at RIBA, the Royal Institute Of British Architecture takes an indepth look at the legacy left through the structures that were erected for different celebratory events across time.

Free entry.
