Interior and Spatial Design and Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Graduate School are delighted to join forces for an exhibition and public events programme exploring the lived experience of Millbank

The Millbank Atlas is a collaborative project that brings together researchers, students and local residents to trace the neighbourhood of Chelsea College of Arts. Students of BA Interior and Spatial Design’s Studio 07 have used practice-based research to create maps and other cartographic experiments that identify distinguishing characteristics of this part of London. At stake here is a better understanding of Millbank as comprised of reciprocal relations between the College and surrounding businesses, residential blocks, civil society groups, transportation links and other amenities, infrastructure and further aspects of this built and natural environment.

This exhibition of The Millbank Atlas is cocurated by Dr Marsha Bradfield and Shibboleth Shechter and will showcase an ongoing community relationship that Shechter established with Millbank local Wilfried Rimensberger in 2014.

The Millbank Atlas is made possible thanks to generous support from Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School.
