Ephemeral Architecture (London, 10 December 2016 – 16 April 2017)

The Victoria & Albert Museum, London

From triumphal arches to international exhibition pavilions, and from experimental designs to emergency solutions, temporary structures are used for celebration, display, invention and intervention. This display of original drawings, prints, models and photographs from the collections of the V&A and the RIBA explores ephemeral architecture from arches for Renaissance emperors to shelters for today’s refugees.
