The Gainsborough Bath Spa is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Museum of Bath Architecture’s exhibition: Past, Present, Future: Bath, and the Smithsons. The exhibition, running until 25 November, explores Bath's unique architecture through two of England's most influential post-war architects - Peter and Alison Smithson. It is part of a series of events celebrating the Smithsons as part of the Royal Crescent 250 year anniversary.
Past, Present, Future: Bath and the Smithsons explores the extraordinary connection between old and new in the Smithsons’ work and the inspiration they found in the Royal Crescent and the city's historic structures for their modern designs
The Smithsons’ Brutalist style is quite unlike the Palladian architecture of Bath and yet they found enormous inspiration in the historic buildings. The exhibition will look at the booklet Bath: Walks Within the Walls that Peter Smithson wrote about the city, and Smithsons’ last major architectural project in England, the buildings they designed for the University of Bath.
The exhibition Past, Present, Future: Bath and the Smithsons runs in the Museum of Bath Architecture until 25 November 2017. Free with admission to the museum: Adult £6, Child £2.50, Family £14.
