LONDON.- Museum of Architecture announces its latest exhibition: A Concrete Atlantis Revisited. The exhibition 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, Erich Mendelsohn and Walter Gropius - the exhibition traces the role concrete silos have played in the architectural production to the present day. The exhibition is structured around three different sections: The opening section puts on display the work of architectural photographer Adam Elstein. Elstein's photographs depict the grain silos in Buffalo, New York, that have captivated the imagination and incited the theoretical discourse of Modernist architects. The second part of the exhibition traces the influence of silo architecture on Le Corbusier, Erich Mendelsohn and Walter Gropius both through their work and writing. The final section of the exhibition showcases the work of contemporary architects, such as Heatherwick Studio and MVRDV, that re-imagines the silo today.

The exhibition is open every day from 10am to 6pm at the Museum of Architecture, 10 Thurloe Place, South Kensington, London. The exhibition runs until 28 February 2017.

To celebrate the opening of A Concrete Atlantis Revisited, the Museum of Architecture is hosting a talk between photographer Adam Elstein and Stepan Martinovsky from Heatherwick Studio. A Concrete Atlantis Revisited maps the legacy of American industrial architecture in the development of the Modern Movement in Europe, while also offering contemporary perspectives on re-imagining the concrete silo today. For this talk, Adam Elstein will be discussing the relationship between the built environment, time and nature, explored through his photographs of Buffalo grain elevators. Stepan Martinovsky, from Heatherwick Studio, on the other hand, will be presenting their re-invention of the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
