Tszwai So, an architect with Spheron Architects and currently a student on the MSt in Building History, is curating an exhibition at this year’s London Festival of Architecture entitled ‘Remembering Chernobyl: London's First Wooden Church since 1666’. Designed as a memorial to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the catastrophic reactor fire at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on 26 April 1986, the church or chapel is being built close to the Francis Skaryna Belarusian Library and Museum. Although Chernobyl lies within Ukraine, the state of Belarus bore the brunt of the fallout from the disaster.
The exhibition, at Woodside Park, London N12, runs from 4 to 26 June. For further details, go to http://architecturediary.org/london/events/6211.
