What’s all the fuss about Renzo Piano?
As the brains behind The Shard, architect Renzo Piano’s stratospheric career has taken him to the pinnacle of London – literally. The Royal Academy of Arts is celebrating his work in Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings (from 15th September). The exhibition charts Piano’s most impressive projects, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris and New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art. Look out for a sculpture installing 100 of his structures on one imaginary island, which would surely be a fabulous place to be cast away.
