Reason & Intuition: Alvar Aalto & Ola Kolehmainen in Soane
- 4 July — 24 August 2014 *on now
Alvar Aalto’s modernist creations will fill Pitzhanger Manor acting as a counterpoint to the Regency surroundings of the house. The exhibition will feature around forty Aalto designs, including chairs, tables, lights, glassware and textiles, as well as rarer pieces, such as a collection of original designs and plans for some of Aalto’s 500 buildings and glassware designed by his first wife and collaborator, Aino.
Meanwhile three distinct collections of Ola Kolehmainen photography will take over PM Gallery: his acclaimed, abstract, Aalto-influenced architectural images (featuring some Aalto buildings), as well as new work exploring the Siena Cathedral in Italy (a building highly regarded by Aalto) and the most significant mosques in Istanbul.
