From Better Bankside website:

Union Press is a temporary and small scale publishing house dedicated to Union Street in South London.

Union Press is an open publishing workshop examining the ins and outs of Union Street and its surrounding communities while experimenting with forms of public production. For a 10 day period from 23 June 2012, we will open our doors on Flat Iron Square from a custom designed billboard kiosk.
A public program consisting of walks, talks and workshops will result in a multitude of publications ranging from catalogs, post cards, posters, fanzines, and more. To keep up to date with the rapidly evolving program visit our website on http://www.unionpress.cc or get in touch directly if you would like to find out more or join the production.
Union Press is a project by public works, commissioned by Better Bankside as part of Bankside Urban Forest.

SHIFTS: The Economic Crisis and its Consequences for Architecture

New exhibition opens today at the Architecture Foundation.

9th May – 9th June 2012,

136-148 Tooley St, London SE1 2TU

Admission Free, opening times Tuesday – Saturday 12pm – 6pm

Rotterdam/Copenhagen-based Powerhouse Company and critic and architectural historian Hans Ibelings (the Architecture Observer) present an evocative, polemical exhibition illustrating the far-reaching impacts of new economic circumstances on architecture’s present and future, through film, models, and text.

Exploring the fundamental changes that the culture and practice of architecture are undergoing worldwide as consequence of seismic political and financial challenges, the show plays with the formats of a traditional architectural exhibition to speculate upon how we got here, and what comes next.

A series of events will punctuate and expand the exhibition, including a publication launch mid-way through the show, chronicling the project’s research. Watch this space for further information on the full events programme.
