Join Amin Taha, director of Groupwork+Amin Taha, for a tour of the innovative 15 Clerkenwell Close. Using a limited choice of self-finished materials, carved and fallen columns, revealed cloisters and mosaic floors, 15 Clerkenwell Close at first alludes to a local physical and social archaeology, but also raises questions on architectural heritage and its integration within a broader culture. 

Reminding us the literacy of the built and broader environment is based on understanding and disseminating through building the poetic possibilities inherent within the structural and aesthetic qualities of all materials available that make up the vocabulary of all architectural languages.
