Hayward Gallery Celebrates 40th

by R27 CREATIVELAB on Wednesday, 2 July 2008

An event celebrating The Hayward's 40th anniversary. The discussion brings together a distinguished group of artists and architects including Zaha Hadid, Antony Gormley, Ricky Burdett and Dennis Crompton, one of the group of architects who designed The Hayward.

Taking the The Hayward and its surrounding environment as a point of reference, the panel discuss and debate different, but often concurrent, approaches to designing gallery architecture: the great modernist tradition of building-as-machine and idea of gallery as sculptural icon.
