Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern World at The Barbican, London
10th January 2015
Constructing Worlds brings together eighteen exceptional photographers from the 1930s to the present day who have changed the way we view architecture and perceive the world around us.
From the first skyscrapers in New York and decaying colonial structures in the Congo, to the glamorous suburban homes of post-war California, and the modern towers of Venezuela, we invite you on a global journey through 20th and 21st century architecture.
Featuring over 250 works, including important works by Stephen Shore, The Bechers, Walker Evans, Berenice Abbot and Ed Rucha among others, this exhibition highlights the power of photography in revealing hidden truths in our society.
Join us at the gallery at 10.45 for an 11am start.  We will visit the exhibition and then discuss over coffee.
Places are free to all OCA students.  To book your place please email
