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, ealing.gov.uk/pmgalleryandhouse). Admission free.
