Freelance graphic designer Sam Oakley has built on his love of the ‘brutalist aesthetic’ for his first solo art exhibition in London. I Love Concrete features screen-printed vinyl-cut graphic paintings of five landmarks of the architectural style: Bedford House and Trellick Tower, along with the Brunswick, Barbican and South Bank centres. ‘I like their uncompromising design,’ says Oakley, who trained as an architect. The exhibition runs from 13-17 November, between 12-7pm every day, at This Way Up Gallery, upstairs from the Dragon Bar, 5 Leonard Street, London EC2.
Curated by Sea Design, the exhibition focuses on the geometric identity created by consultancy Roundel, which was used on British Rail’s freight trains in the 1980s and 1990s.
Rethinking Urban Mobility has been conducted by companies including Arup and the London Transport Museum, and looks at the impact of developments in transport such as self-driving cars on cities
