modernist archaeology (a small collection)

 a lump of the long lost Central Saint Martins graphic design department, Long Acre Covent Garden London. Salvaged years ago during building works for the present occupiers H&M. this concrete lump was taken from my old classroom and retains a flat white painted wall surface (above and below).

 a section of cement render from a chip shop in New Cross, London. salvaged in 1999. 1960s ceramic tiled pattern, white with blue details tiled over an earlier painted finish. the brickwork impression can still be seen to the rear (below).
 mosaic ceramic tile sections found in early 2000 dropping off an unknown derelict shop front on Deptford High Street, London.
mosaic tiled section revealed behind the modern signage of a shop in Portobello Road this week.
a further celebration of modernist archaeology can be found at: Modernist Swindon
