/ Fa├žadism

Opening Saturday February 22 2014, 16.00 hours

Exhibition, February 23 - April 20 2014

Curator: Eelco van der Lingen

A facade that suggests a different, better looking reality is false, fake and forged but what if the facade is nothing but a facade? What if pretence isn't hidden but presented in full view?
In Façadism the facades are real, the fictional world is the subject that is presented in different ways, but in all ways true.


Talk, Thursday April 10, 20.00 hours

Paul Davies

Paul Davies, senior lecturer Architecture at London South Bank University, talks about the façade in (post)modern architecture. 

English spoken
Admission € 2,00

Expect a talk which offers a cunning insight in the ideas behind Façadism from the point of view of an architect.
Davies sees a link between the work of Le Corbusier, that of Robert Venturi and Mecanoo; the architectural company from Delft responsible for the recent Birmingham library, which has been described as ‘like a stack of gift wrapped presents’.

Not an expert in Architecture? Don't worry, Paul Davies delivers his talks in an intelligent, yet understandable and entertaining manner.

Paul Davies was born on Mersea Island in 1961, grew up Manchester and moved to London in 1984. He is well known as a lecturer and writer and for his collaborative work with photographer Julie Cook. During the nineties they spent considerable time in Las Vegas. He spent fifteen years lecturing on Las Vegas and  related subjects at the Architectural Association and now teaches History and Theory at London South Bank. He writes regularly for the Architectural Review. Presently he is writing a book for the Architectural Press: ‘The Unauthorized Biography of Architecture’.
