IT may not be everybody’s favourite piece of architecture, but Thamesmead features in major exhibition on British homes over the last 250 years.

The show, organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects, is called A Place to Call Home and is guest curated by TV property guru Sarah Beeny.

It features more than 120 images and drawings from the institute’s collection, focusing on five ‘classic’ post-war high rise estates - including Thamesmead.

“Packed with wonderful drawings and photographs, this show has something to please every home-dweller.”

It runs from February 16 to April 27 at the British Architectural Library near Regent’s Park.
