People who have saved this event:


The exhibition is about the innovative use of concrete. It celebrates Ove Arup's enthusiasm for a material that has captured the imagination of engineers, architects and artists alike.


On display are a select number of Arup’s concrete projects since the founding years of the firm to the present. They include Busáras, Dublin’s main bus Station, the monumental Brynmawr factory, Wales, the Barbican Centre, London, and the extraordinary, soon to open Taichung Metropolitan Opera House, Taiwan. Concrete has been explored in different ways by artists Bernd and Hilla Becher, Thomas Demand, Luisa Lambri, Simon Phipps and Rachel Whiteread. Together the works in this exhibition show how the material was tested to its limits historically and continues to be a rich source of inspiration in creative practice today.
