Soane and Le Corbusier: Modulating Light and Arresting Views
21 March – 19 April
Architect Patrick Weber presents a series of architectural interventions. Situated in the small drawing room and library, the works examine how the design methods of two eminent architects – Sir John Soane and Le Corbusier – inform architectural understandings of the relationship between lighting, views and materials in domestic space. The works draw on the striking similarities between their approaches including their innovations in how spaces are lit, their affiliations with spatial experiences and specific materials (brass and concrete, respectively), as well as their ‘breaks’ with their mentors.
The works presented in the Soane Suite consist of four models – two responding to Le Corbusier (cast in concrete) and a further two responding to John Soane (made out of brass).
