Roca London Gallery opens

Roca London Gallery opens

Went to the opening evening of Zaha Hadid’s latest London based project, built for the Spanish sanitaryware giant, Roca. Regardless of whether you like this type of space-age architecture (Starship Enterprise was never far from my mind) there is no denying it is impressive. According to the accompanying website ‘The concept for the Roca London Gallery begins with water in its many forms and phases as both an idea to make space and to express our adaptability and openness to change and innovation. Water acts as a theme for the architecture theme, connecting all aspects of the Gallery. The displays and the areas around each display have been shaped by the movement of water. Water has created a changeable space, one which people will continue to return to.’

The gallery is open to the public and will also be available for commercial events. If you’re looking for a new toilet and you’re in the area then have a look.

The CENTQUATRE exhibition, Paris

If you’re ever in Paris, check out this place. It’s a hub of creativity – a unique and innovative centre of contemporary arts. It holds artistic workshops, has resident artists, exhibition spaces, two theatres, shops and a restaurant. IN_PERCEPTIONS is currently showing at CENTQUATRE (5, rue Curial, 75019 Paris), until Dec. 9th, and consists of five mind-bending monumental installations by artists Leandro Erlich, Ann Veronica Janssens and Lawrence Malstaf. Think modern day Esher.
