The latest commission is London in its Original Splendour, by celebrated artist Pablo Bronstein. This immersive new installation envelops the gallery in a 3D-rendered wallpaper inspired by historic design and architecture.

About

Bronstein’s striking transformation features his most complex wallpaper design to date, rich in decorative and architectural motifs. Whole buildings, including exterior and interior areas are rendered in great detail, while in the ‘distance’, expansive vistas appear to open up between buildings, revealing wider views of a fictionalized cityscape. Two temporary, angled walls have been integrated into the space to guide visitors as they ‘tour’ through Bronstein’s illusory environment.

Drawing on a wide field of reference, from the elaborate visual effects devised by Renaissance and Baroque masters to the design legacy of the site’s nearby buildings of Christopher Wren, John Soane, Edwin Lutyens and James Stirling, Bronstein has characteristically stirred the pot of architectural history and styles – inviting visitors to join him in this uniquely immersive installation.
