22 September 2016 – 5 February 2017
This autumn something out of the ordinary is happening at RIBA. Come and explore the repurposed Architecture Gallery as the multi-disciplinary artist Giles Round focuses our attention on one of the most familiar and unavoidable architectural features of the city: the façade.
By turning the gallery into a production studio and shop, this exhibition questions the ways in which we collect, preserve and purchase façades today. Inspired by the work of a wide-range of architects in RIBA’s Collections, it explores the increasing tension between the changing interior and static exterior of the architecture around us and our subsequently unreliable understanding of cities and spaces.
