Exhibition will feature 17 practices
The RIBA has said that 17 practices will feature in a new exhibition about the work of British practices abroad.
Called New British Works, the exhibition will feature work from established practices including Zaha Hadid and David Chipperfield as well as up and coming firms such as Coffey Architects.
Practice founder Phil Coffey said it will be showcasing a model of its first scheme in China called Cloister – a scheme for the Qingdao Iron and Steel Group which includes research, logistics and sports buildings.
Coffey said: “It’s nice for us to get a chance and show what we’ve done and to be exhibiting at the RIBA.”
The RIBA said more names will be released in the coming weeks. “We are still developing the full list and projects,” said public programmes manager Mike Althorpe.
Next February, the RIBA will also hold an exhibition celebrating the feats of Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Nicholas Grimshaw, Terry Farrell and Michael and Patty Hopkins called The Brits Who Built the Modern World.
