Exhibition of the Work of Architect Craig Hamilton

I was rather interested to receive the following, which provided me an opportunity to take a closer look at the work of Craig Hamilton:

The Architect Craig Hamilton is to hold an exhibition of architectural drawings, furniture and models at The Gallery in Cork Street, 28 Cork Street, London W1S 3NG from 28th September until 3rd October 2009. The exhibition will be opened by Dr. John Martin Robinson at 6:00 pm on Wednesday 30th September 2009.

The work exhibited is representative of the last five years of work (2004 – 2009). The drawings and models illustrated in this exhibition, illustrate a range of projects including chapels, country houses, urban architecture as well as design for furniture and monuments. Collaborative works with the Neo-Classical Sculptor Alexander Stoddart, who was recently appointed Sculptor in Ordinary to the Queen in Scotland, will also be exhibited.

The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with a foreword by Gavin Stamp.

We have featured the excellent work of Mr. Hamilton on the NLM before (see here for example). Those in the London area would likely be well advised to make a trip to this exhibition, which will also manifest your support for architects operating within more traditional architectural and design idioms.

Here is a small sampling of Mr. Hamilton's drawings.

As a point of interest, here is the latter tabernacle as it actually came to fruition:

Further samples of his work, both drawn and actualized, may be found on the website of Craig Hamilton Architects.
