Architecture and Memory: ‘GM Cantacuzino – a Hybrid Modernist’
Runs until 29 August 2014
The first monographic travelling exhibition on a Romanian architect ever to be staged outside Romania, ‘GM Cantacuzino – A Hybrid Modernist’ is a tribute to Cantacuzino’s extraordinary artistic legacy, offering a cross-section through his momentous life and work and presenting original books and paintings along with a tripartite chronological display of architectural works, quotations and contexts.
