Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age is an exhibition taking place in the Barbican Art Gallery until 11 January 2015. It contains work by eighteen photographers from the 1930s until the present day, such as Berenice Abbott and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and features the work of architects such as Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright.

I found the sheer variety of the exhibition particularly interesting – the photographs cover many different kinds of buildings in lots of different countries. These include 1930s New York, glamorous Hollywood, South American favelas and modern Chinese riverside buildings. The exhibition is definitely worth seeing, even if you don;t think you are interested in architecture.
