The Concrete Atlantis Revisited is a new exhibition conceived by the Museum of Architecture that takes Reyner Banham’s 1986 book as a starting point to examine the influence of industrial architecture on the built environment. Starting from masters of the Modern Movement in the early 20th century – Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius and Erich Mendelsohn – the exhibition traces the role concrete silos have played in the architectural production to the present day. The special focus of the exhibition is a series of photographs taken by Adam Elstein of the grain silos in Buffalo, New York.
Running at MoA’s temporary exhibition space in South Kensington, the exhibition draws together a variety of material, from photography to architectural models, magazines, books and archival imagery.
