NRR was invited to present material as part of The Beautifullest Place on Earth, a project between the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and The National Trust, supported by Arts Council England.

 

NRR curated a display of Ted Hollamby's book collection. Hollamby, a prominet post-war Architect, planner and conservationist, owned and lived at Red House for over fifty years.

 

Hollamby's books reflect his diverse interests from political pamphlets, to books on medieval sculpture, architectural theory, Fine art, Modernism and the formation of the heritage industry.

 

New texts and writing produced by artists at Red House connected with the project were displayed and now form part of NRR's collection.
