Palladio Exhibition in London
Andrea Palladio Exhibition at The Royal Academy of Arts
Eric Parry Architects has been appointed by The Royal Academy of Arts to design the exhibition devoted to the 16th century master architect Andrea Palladio, which opens in London in January 2009.
The most significant exhibition of Palladio’s work in more than 30 years, some 200 exhibits will be displayed in a series of themed rooms designed to appeal both to scholars and the wider public. The design of the gallery spaces will reflect the intimacy and immediacy of Palladio’s own drawings and the completed vision through the display of stunning contemporary models.
Eric Parry of Eric Parry Architects (EPA) said:
“This is a wonderful opportunity to share the vision of one of the world’s most significant architects with the general public”.
MaryAnn Stevens, Director of Academic Affairs and Exhibition Curator, Royal Academy of Arts added; “EPA’s design was chosen for its vivid solution to the challenge of presenting architecture within an exhibition without the presence of the building.”
The exhibition has been organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London in collaboration with the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio and the Royal Institute of British Architects to mark the quincentenary of Palladio’s birth.
The exhibition is open to the public from 31 Jan – 13 Apr 2009.
