‘Traces of Peter Rice’ celebrates the life and work of Peter Rice (1935-1992), one of Arup’s most pioneering structural engineers and a key member of the Centre Pompidou design team.
The exhibition reminds designers, engineers, and artists of today that Rice’s achievements relied equally on fierce ingenuity and devoted collaboration. The exhibition includes design stories from three of Rice’s projects: Centre Pompidou, the Menil Collection, Houston and the Full-Moon Theatre near Montpellier. It features prototypes, maquettes, drawings, paintings, photography and a new film of interviews with friends and past associates, including Richard Rogers, Lennart Grut, Laurie Abbot and Renzo Piano (also available online).
An accompanying book includes a foreword by Richard Rogers
The exhibition runs from 27 Nov 2012 to 5 April 2013
Location: 8 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 4BJ, UK
Opening times: Monday - Friday, 9am - 6pm (and by appointment)
