Alison Wilding RA

We went to see the work which Alison Wilding is showing in her old studio space next door to the Regent’s canal.   It was commissioned by Simmons and Simmons, the city law firm, for their new headquarters in Canary Wharf, which was to have been designed by Santiago Calatrava.   But they fell out with him. Alison’s work was used as a hat stand and then put into storage.   It looks good, evanescent in the space:-

  1. It’s hard to see from these images why they favoured this over Santiago Calatrava who is one of the outstanding architects in Europe : there is far too little of his work in UK.
