Richard Serra’s show at the Gagosian in London’s King’s Cross is showing four new pieces of work from the 74 year old New Yorker.
Each piece occupies its own room: not only insulating experience, but allowing each to interact with its own space. ‘London Cross’ is two pieces of rolled steel sheet, resting almost delicately one on the other. The identically sized 10 metre sheets maintain their fulcrum by precisely filling the room diagonals. With nowhere to fall, they can’t fall.
Backdoor Pipeline is a curving double wall forming an enclosed pathway. Seemingly simple shapes are fashioned by incredibly complex geometries; one resting casually against the other. Taking three years and sixty individuals to make, it was manufactured at a heavy loss by a shipbuilder.

The Design Museum’s Louis Kahn exhibition was an architecture exhibition for architects. Kahn made very few buildings in his career but is considered one of the most remarkable architects of the 20th century. In particular, The Yale Centre for British Art is a stunning building demonstrating all of the light obsessions and material tropes for which he was well known; and looks so of the moment it could’ve been built yesterday.
