In the 1950s architects wanted larger scale patterns to decorate the new public and commercial buildings being built as part of post-war redevelopment. In response to this need, the Palladio range of architects’ papers were produced from 1955 to 1971, initially printed by Lightbrown Aspinall, and from 1966 by Sandersons. The range featured innovative designs by some of the UK’s foremost artists and designers, several of which won awards.
The Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) houses the most comprehensive collection of early Palladio ranges in a UK public institution, dating from 1955 to 1964. During our visit Curator of Collections Zoë Henderson will be talking us through these in MoDA’s study Room.
How to get there:  If you’re not driving, 10 minutes’ walk from Colindale Tube Station on the Northern Line.
