Living Laboratory: Richard Pare on Le Corbusier and Konstantin Melnikov

Here’s a March must for fans of modernists, a show of photographs devoted to two of the most influential architects of the early 20th century - Swiss/French Le Corbusier and Konstantin Melnikov from Russia.
The images, including this one of Le Corbusier’s Sainte Marie de La Tourette priory near Lyon, were taken by architectural photographer Richard Pare, whose detailed and multi-faceted approach entailed numerous visits to the buildings and the innovatory use of both film and digital techniques.
A bonus is the show’s setting — in an extension to one of Sir John Soane’s great architectural treasures, Pitzhanger Manor, his “dream house” for entertaining and showing off his art and antiquities.
  • March 21 to May 11 at PM Gallery & House, Pitzhanger Manor, Walpole Park, Mattock Lane, Ealing, W5 (020 8567 1227, Admission free.
