RA to show works from New York's Museum of Modern Art

  • Comment

The Royal Academy will stage a major show of architectural drawings at the end of this year, all chosen from the collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.Called 'Building Visions', the exhibition will span the 20th century with 140 items from some 60 architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn. It will take place in Foster's Sackler Galleries from 7 December to 16 February 2003.

At a press conference last week in the Academy's newly restored Reynolds Room, collections secretary and senior curator MaryAnne Stevens said she was 'fairly optimistic' that the exhibition will be designed by 'a very distinguished contemporary architect' - though she could not say who.

Rem Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid are among the speakers in the accompanying lecture series.
