The Apollo podcast: Amanda Levete

19 July 2017

In this Apollo podcast, Thomas Marks meets architect Amanda Levete to discuss the V&A’s Exhibition Road Quarter, which has been designed by her architectural practice AL_A. What does the museum’s large new courtyard mean for public space in London, and what were the challenges of adding to the collection of historic buildings in South Kensington? Scroll down for images of some of the buildings and spaces discussed in this podcast.

    I don’t know when the article on J MW TURNER was first listed in ‘Apollo’, but to anyone who has studied Turner’s paintings and drawings (as I have for 40 years), the film of his life was a huge disappointment. First, there was no mention of his early life in London, his trek to Venice or other places in Europe–in fact, the film had no sense of continuity at all.
    Like the art that is now shown in Turner’s name, it would make him spin in his grave.
