Making Space | Photographs of Architecture

An exploration into architecture's impact on society and how it has served as a visual record of human life throughout history.

Making Space explores architecture's impact on human life and society, including its role in tackling inequality, homelessness, and sustainability. The exhibition traces the enduring relationship between architecture and photography, from the first image by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, to modern works by Andreas Gursky and Chris Leslie.

Showcasing a diverse range of photographic styles, formats, and processes spanning from the 1840s to today, the exhibition highlights the profound connection between individuals and their surroundings, revealing how architecture reflects and shapes our lives. The work on display underscores the architecture's potential to address societal challenges and forge a more sustainable future.
