Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light

Sergi, 10 Mart - 24 Haziran 2013 tarihleri arasında MOMA'da izlenebilir.

The first solo exhibition on Labrouste in the United States, Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light establishes his work as a milestone in the modern evolution of architecture. Labrouste made an invaluable impact on 19th-century architecture through his exploration of new paradigms of space, materials, and luminosity in places of great public assembly. The exhibition highlights his two magisterial glass-and-iron reading rooms in Paris—the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève (1838–50) and the Bibliothèque nationale (1859–75)—which gave form to the idea of the modern library as a temple of knowledge and as a space for contemplation.

Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light presents a monographic portrait of the architect’s voyage of discovery and invention of a challenging new language of architecture within a larger investigation of his influence—from the work of his direct pupils to later architectural masters, including Auguste Perret, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Pier Luigi Nervi. The exhibition includes over 200 works, including models, drawings, period and contemporary photographs, and film projections.
