Local Happenings | Sensing Spaces – Royal Academy of Arts
Having a preview to this exhibition thanks to House & Gardens, it was a great way to start the week.
8am meeting for coffee and great introduction I then allowed myself time to get lost in the exhibition:
The aim of this – Architecture reimagined… buildings upside down, light from the base upwards… very cool.
Kengo Kuma – combining bamboo shoots with light and even smell… loved this, an organic growing in the space, really beautiful and hard to photograph!
Grafton Architects – light vs darkness… concrete walls floating down..
Pexo von Ellrichshausen – pine columns leading to a different ‘tree’ house, kids will love climbing those columns.
Li Xiaodong – this was my personal favourite, wood over light representing snow, a maze, darkness and quite was really something especially when there were different elements at every corner, coming into a dark mirrored space with stones as the landscape –awesome.
