The Plaice team visited the Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Building exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

The exhibition followed Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making. Focusing on 16 key buildings, it explores how the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) designs buildings “piece by piece”, making deft use of form, material and engineering to achieve a precise and yet poetic elegance.

On view were rarely seen drawings, models, photography, signature full-scale maquettes and a new film by Thomas Riedelsheimer that showed how inspiring architecture is made. At the centre of the exhibition was an imagined ‘Island’, a specially designed sculptural installation which brought together nearly 100 of Piano’s projects.
