Description

The Archive for Rural Contemporary Architecture surveys, collates and celebrates Britain’s rare and often-over looked twentieth century rural architectural sites.

ARCA explores interpretations of the British landscape that focus on often marginal and overlooked places. The on-line archive creates a multi-layered reading of places often accompanied by forgotten social histories and an appreciation of the bleak, the failed and the uncomfortable. The archive acts as a roadmap for other activities to spring board from, creating a forum of events around ARCA, encompassing Architours, publications and location specific events.

ARCA launched the publication Slacklands in May 2014, which provides a guide to 31 sites across the UK, with an informative text with photographs that capture each sites' lack of traditional appeal as well as their striking aesthetic.
