ARCHITECT CHARLES CORREA EXHIBITION PRINTS
14/05/13 - 04/09/13
The internationally recognised architect Charles Correa has gifted the RIBA in London his archive. This included drawings, photographs and models spanning a 70 year career.
As a gesture of thanks the RIBA have put together a visual synopsis of Charles Correa's archive on site in Portland Place, London which is free to the public and will continue into September. The exhibition was designed by the eminent architect David Adjaye, produced by Standard 8 and I was given the honour of printing over 160 large format prints.
Correa led a press tour of the exhibition on the opening day. He preferred to concentrate on the spiritual nature of his architecture outlining a number of sketches that detailed the 'path' or 'journey'.
Charles Correa won the RIBA Gold Medal in 1984, the same year that Prince Charles gave his 'Monstrous Carbuncle' Speech denouncing modernist architecture. The irony was not overlooked by the world's press which gave Correa a wider reputation among people that formally had no interest in architecture.
