★★★★ "A key moment in British architecture" - The Times
"Delightful... a masterpiece" - Burlington
The exhibition will focus on the early, ‘radical moment’ of Postmodernism, which it will reveal to be one of the most inventive periods in British architectural history – a moment when the architectural past came alive with new possibilities for the future.
Focusing on a selection of pivotal works by the movement's principal protagonists – Terry Farrell, Piers Gough, Jeremy Dixon, John Outram and James Stirling/Michael Wilford – the exhibition will feature a range of stunning drawings, models and images, as well as full-scale replicas and fragments of actual buildings. Much of this material has never been exhibited publicly. Displayed the Museum’s exhibition galleries as well adjoining Soane-designed period interiors, the exhibition will forge a rich, complex and at times surprising dialogue with the Museum and Soane’s own relationship to the architectural past.
An one-hundred page catalogue to accompany the exhibition is available to buy online here
