Moore St Substation -livepages::jquery();?>
Come on down to APG Works and check out our new exhibition based around two original architectural perspectives of the Moore St. Electricity Substation by Kenneth Steel.
We obtained the kind permission of the artist Kenneth Steel's family in New Zealand and of the drawings' owners Edward Yardley and Malcolm Camp to develop a new print based on these images.
The building is a well-known Sheffield landmark. Built in the early 1960s to a design by the the late Bryan Jefferson, a leading modernist architect and former president of the RIBA, it exemplifies the bold style sometimes known as Brutalism, and was listed in 2010.
Kenneth Steel (RBA, SGA 1906-1970) was a Sheffield artist who after studying at Sheffield College of Art achieved a prolific output of artwork for the railways, including travel posters for LNER and BR; he was also much in demand by architects and engineering consultants for his architectural perspectives.
This exhibition features modern prints of some of his well-known travel posters and a small selection of other drawings.
