From The Shard in London to the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Renzo Piano's buildings have enriched cities across the globe. United by a characteristic sense of lightness, and an interplay between tradition and invention, function and context, they soar in the public imagination as they do in our skylines.
This illuminating exhibition reveals the vision behind one of the greatest architects of our times, following his career from his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making.
Designed and curated in close collaboration with Piano himself, and bringing together rarely-seen drawings, models, and signature full-scale mock-ups, this is the first of the RA's annual exhibitions dedicated to showing inspiring architecture.
Oceania brings together around 200 exceptional works from public and private collections worldwide, spanning over 500 years. From shell, greenstone and ceramic ornaments, to huge canoes and stunning god images, Oceania explores important themes of voyaging, placemaking, and cultural contact. The exhibition draws from rich historic ethnographic collections dating from the 18th century to the present, and includes seminal works produced by contemporary artists exploring history, identity, and climate change.
