  • GLOBAL CITIES: At Tate Modern

    Community, Communication Design

    Posters_282_

    Walking through the crowded platforms and tunnels of the London Tube today, I began questioning how many more people we can possibly cram into London. Ducking and diving along the platform I was pleasantly suprised to be confronted with the poster for London's Tate Modern Exhibition Global Cities.

    Angus Hyland and William Russell have designed Global Cities, a major free exhibition that is taking place in the spectacular Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London from 20 June through 27 August. The exhibition has been developed from a show that formed the centrepiece of the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2006 by the Tate curatorial team, Professor Richard Burdett and his team at the London School of Economics (LSE), with Pentagram providing art direction throughout.

    Global Cities looks at five major issues - size, speed, form, density and diversity - and their effects on ten major urban centers: Cairo, Istanbul, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Tokyo. The exhibition places comparative socio-economic and geographic data alongside video and photography by twenty artists and architects and specially commissioned London-inspired work by Nigel Coates, Zaha Hadid and Patrick Schumacher, Fritz Haeg, Rem Koolhaas, Nils Norman and Richard Wentworth.
