Ever since its inception, photography has profoundly influenced the practice and study of architecture, never more so than with the advent of Modernism in the 1920s.
Comprising over 100 vintage photographs almost entirely drawn from the RIBA British Architectural Library Photographs Collection, the exhibition explores how the development of the architecture of this period was recorded and shaped by photography as well as the part played by books and magazines such as Domus and Casabella in fostering this striking visual exploration.
Curated by the RIBA British Architectural Library Photographs Collection. Supported by a generous grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
Admission: £5, concessions £3.50. Free to school children and students with valid NUS ID card.
