This was Tomorrow is a major new exhibition of work by Paul Catherall and a celebration of the utopian ideals that were present in many post-war rebuilds: the Modernist and Brutalist buildings around London and the UK which hark back to a time when commerce came second to public use. 


The theme of this exhibition is partly a lament to the forgotten or lost gems that were part of the optimistic post-war architectural vision. Some, such as Welbeck Street Car Park and Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre are sadly gone, others are neglected and forgotten, whilst others such as the Southbank complex are still celebrated and life continues to thrive around the community driven buildings.
