Explore the beautiful, challenging and complex role of architecture in shaping our experience of art today in The art of architecture. Wander through the galleries of the world; big and small, famous and not-so-famous, as we explore their design challenges, stories and spaces from the perspective of the architect.
Through a selection of some of the most important and (in)famous gallery projects of the last 25 years, this series will critically examine the inspiration and issues behind the gallery designs of the worlds’ leading architects including Jean Nouvel, Renzo Piano, SANAA and Zaha Hadid. Journey into local and international galleries and museums including Mona, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Sydney Modern Project.
For a detailed, critical and surprising journey through the projects themselves and new perspectives on the complex nature of contemporary art and its environment, join us in a candid and inspiring look at what makes a place for art today.
