Windows of Kennington

Florence, Linda (2014) Windows of Kennington. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Florence, Linda

As part of the Building Exploratory’s public consultation programme for the library, Linda Florence was asked to design an installation to signify that the Durning Library was open.

The design drew upon the characters that populate the outside of the building and combined these with themes of growth and horticulture, both of which are so important to this area of London. The design celebrated the library’s activities and the rich historic content, with references to Doulton pottery and other local historical icons.

New technologies combined with older depictions of more classical forms of art, such as a musician playing a lute through an amplifier and the Durning Library dragon sitting at a computer, are illustrated in the windows.

This project was launched with the presentation of Dow Jones Architect’s latest design iterations for the renovation of Durning Library.
