Reflections: The Anatomy of Form

Showing for the first time in London, this exhibit explores the work behind Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), an interdisciplinary practice responsible for some of the world’s most technically and environmentally advanced buildings.

What to expect

A series of models offer insight into SOM’s exploration of the idea architects and engineers practice a poetry of inquiry, experimentation and ingenuity. The exhibit showcases a selection of SOM’s ground-breaking projects, all of which anticipated new ways of living, working, and learning. The display includes projects from different typologies and height, including Exchange House and Manhattan Loft Gardens in London, JTI headquarters in Geneva; John Hancock Centre (875 North Michigan Avenue) and the Sears Tower (now known as the Willis Tower) in Chicago, as well as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
