In bringing together works by renowned artists Andreas Gursky, Rachel Whiteread and Martha Rosler alongside architecture designed by Ernő Goldfinger, Berthold Lubetkin and Alvar Aalto, Living with Buildings at Wellcome Collection, London, examines how urban structures influence society’s health and well being through an interdisciplinary approach.
Featured works include a monumental photograph by Gursky documenting the geometric design of the Mouchotte Building in Montparnasse. Investigating the experiences of life in a globalised world, the image highlights the anonymity of high-rise structures whilst pointing to the unique lives of individuals within.
The exhibition is open until 3 March. Find out more here.
