Established in 2017 Antepavilion is an Arts and Architecture Charity that aims to encourage independent thought and foster creativity around the subjects of Art and Architecture.
Through examination and discussion of the continuum art-craft-architecture relationship we aim to demonstrate the importance of upholding a balance between them in our ever-commercialising urban realm. Provision of affordable studio spaces serves to reinforce this by maintaining a creative presence in a city where ever increasing rents threaten London's status as a world-class creative hub.
The commissioning and exhibiting of contemporary architectural and other 3d works and the hosting of various debates and talks alongside the provision of affordable studio spaces in the heart of London enable furtherance of our objectives, specifically to advance the education of the public in art and architecture particularly but not exclusively the people of Hackney.
Our annual competition: The Antepavilion Commission with invaluable support from the Architecture Foundation offers emerging architects, artists and makers an opportunity to create new work for public display within the Columbia and Brunswick Wharf complex, a unique urban environment, situated on the Regents Canal in Haggerston, East London.
