'Studios for Artists: Concepts and Concrete' - High House Artists' Studios featured in new book
'Studios for Artists: Concepts and Concrete' is the new book resulting from and charting the collaboration between Acme Studios and Central Saint Martins, edited by Graham Ellard and Jonathan Harvey. We were really pleased to contribute an essay by Hana Loftus about our work on High House Artists Studios, the brief for which was a direct result of the research undertaken by their collaboration.
The book investigates the form, function and future of the artist's studio, approaching it from the perspectives of both studio provider and art institution, as well as architect and artist. It contains wonderful photography documenting High House Artists' Studios, as well as other Acme studio complexes, by Hugo Glendinning. At a time when affordable studio provision is so highly threatened in London and across the south-east, it is an important publication in pointing the way to both the necessity and the practical steps to achieving functional, affordable and secure studio provision that responds to changing artistic practice.
