JC Robinson was Blackpool Borough’s architect in the 1920s-1940s. From schools to swimming baths, markets, memorial halls and more, JC Robinson is responsible for the design of some of the town’s most iconic buildings. Using painting, photography, sculpture, moving image, oral history and archival materials, this exhibition sees contemporary Blackpool-based practitioners and learning disabled adults returning to the site of these buildings to reveal and reinterpret their stories.
