The Budge Row Bibliotheque
Exhibition Dates: 16th January – 15th March 2015
Adam Dant’s ‘The Budge Row Bibliotheque’ encapsulates two millennia of the everyday life and times of Budge Row, the lost street of the City of London. Responding to Bloomberg’s unique position in the area, Adam Dant’s specially commissioned project for Bloomberg SPACE marks the first part in the 2015 series, ‘The Homecoming’, a programme of four works that explore and respond to the history and architecture of the City of London.
