Building a Dialogue: The Architect and the Client
Time Out says
Not falling out over buildings is an artform, as this exhibition about the history of architecture proves.
There can't be many more permanent projects than buildings, so it's little wonder that architects and their clients have especially delicate and complex relationships. This exhibition looks at the work and influence of British architects such as Sir Christopher Wren, William Chambers and Sir John Soane, charting the development of their profession from Elizabethan to Victorian times and looking at the role of the client in architectural commissions. Projects fatured include Soane's Dulwich Picture Gallery and Wren's Royal Naval College, and the exhibits include private documents, letters and models as well as previously unseen drawings.
