One of the world’s leading design practices, Denton Corker Marshall has developed a distinctive architectural language that explores the fusing of art, architecture and tectonics. The team’s installation for the exhibition reveals the fluid nature of the creative thinking process.

John Gollings’s professional practice incorporates collaborations in graphic design and 3D virtual modelling. Gollings says ‘Denton, Corker and Marshall have always been adamant about recognition of the trilogy rather than the individual’. His cosmos of portraits of Denton Corker Marshall includes abstracted images based on backlit profiles of the team. Gollings says this reflects the ‘sparse and elegant’ nature of their architecture and its ‘play on repetition, undulation and convergence’.
