For the past five years the Phase 2 exhibitions programme has been running at 8 Fitzroy St, London. The programme was created in 2008 to explore connections between art, design and engineering.
Over the next two years Phase 2 will be organising touring and pop-up exhibitions and events in other regions. Through its curated exhibitions Arup aims to engage with the creative community, the general public and its project partners.
The Pivotal Idea
This exhibition looks at pivotal ideas – a key point of realisation on a project. It contains a varied collection of some of these breakthroughs that have helped to shape the work of our Arup Fellows. These are people who inspire and encourage innovative thinking within our firm and across the industry as a whole.
Phase 2’s latest touring exhibition Traces of Peter Rice, curated by Jennifer Greitschus, celebrates the life and work of Peter Rice (1935-1992), one of Arup’s most pioneering structural engineers. The exhibition includes design stories from three of Rice’s projects: Centre Pompidou, the Menil Collection, Houston and the Full-Moon Theatre near Montpellier.
View the documentary film about Peter Rice, directed by Ben Richardson, commissioned for the exhibition.
Traces of Peter Rice continues its international tour to The Naughton Gallery at Queen’s, Queen’s University, Belfast, opening on 28 Feb 2014.
The Sydney Opera House is celebrating its 40th anniversary. In April 2014 Phase 2 will be organising an exhibition to celebrate this incredible project. Further details to follow soon.
