Artefacts & Influence: Objects in dialogue
Mon, April 24, 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM BST
Spanning 12,000 years, this exhibition takes us on a journey through a selection of Arup’s conservation and heritage projects.
The objects illustrate aspects of human endeavour and enterprise that have left an impact on the world around us. This influence can be seen in the places we inhabit, the communities around us and the buildings we design.
Themed in sections, the exhibition explores technological innovations with glass in architecture, the revolution of transportation on the distribution of goods, the need to protect our places from invaders and natural forces, the celebration of heritage through disaster and gifts, the value of community to place-making and intangible heritage, and concepts of individual and cultural identity.
