Staircases and Windows: Collecting Britain’s Architectural History

In the context of the exhibition Finders Keepers Charles Brooking will talk about his fascination with period detail and how it led to his renowned collection of staircases and windows.

Finders Keepers brings together more than 5000 household objects from over 40 collections, including staircases, rainwater heads and sash window weights from the Brooking National Collection. The collection is regularly consulted by students, historians, architects and others with an interest in British building history. In 2014 part of the window collection was on show at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Finders Keepers: The Art of Finding

In its autumn programme, focusing on ‘the collection’ in its many forms and meanings, Het Nieuwe Instituut invites the public to contemplate the necessity of collections, their complexity and the pleasure they bring. From the collections in the exhibition Finders Keepers to Het Nieuwe Instituut’s architecture collection: each collection has its own construction. Thursday Night Live! examines these constructions and offers a critical perspective on what collecting is: the art of finding, selecting, ordering and creating meaning.
