Drawings by Jan Kaplický on display in the RIBA Bookshop

A selection of cutaway drawings by the late Czech architect Jan Kaplický will be exhibited in the RIBA Bookshop, in Portland Place, from 2nd July until 30th October. The exhibition comprises sixteen drawings of projects ranging from the House for a Helicopter Pilot (1978) to the Media Centre for Lord’s Cricket Ground (1994). These remarkable drawings are printed on drafting film and suspended on wires, creating an ethereal atmospheric effect.

The book, Jan Kaplicky Drawings, by Richard Rogers and Ivan Margolius, will be on sale in the bookshop. A book signing will be scheduled for October.
