Place: Trade Fair Palace
Jan Kaplický Drawings presents work by the Czech architect Jan Kaplický (1937–2009), a visionary designer who drew as a means of discovering, describing and constructing. Never satisfied, he constantly developed his own graphic language, perfecting the technique of the cutaway isometric, which became his trademark.
Kaplický founded Future Systems with David Nixon, and through a partnership with Amanda Levete began designing to build – the Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground was the recipient of the 1999 Stirling Prize. One of the world’s last great architectural and artistic draughtsmen, Kaplický presented beguiling architectural imagery of the highest order.
