From Memory Comes Place Project

London was identified as the most ethnically diverse area across England and Wales regions in the 2011 census released by the Office for National Statistics. An estimated 3.1 million people in London were born outside the UK in 2014. In the list of the most common countries of birth of people living in London are Ghana, Kenya, Jamaica, France, Somalia, Italy, Sri Lanka, Romania, Nigeria, Ireland, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Poland and India.

How are these communities influencing and adding to the capital? In what ways do we transfer the memories we choose to hold of our places of origin to the places we end up living in? To what extent has London allowed, and do we allow our memories and socio-cultural identities of the places we once belonged to, to be played out in London?

Through a selection of subjects including architecture, design, fashion, art, food and music, this exhibition, with talks and discussions, will draw out historic and contemporary experiences of London as influenced by the diversity of its ethnic make-up.

The exhibition will be extended across the summer as a project in its entirety to call for projects from experts in relevant fields. The outcome of the project will be gathered into a collection for dissemination, highlighting the influence of London’s ethnic minorities on London over time.


From Memory Comes Place’ is an exhibition event by The Architects’ Project; hosted by the Africa Centre London; and part of the London Festival of Architecture 2017.
