Amanda Levete, founder of the AL_A architectural firm, is one of Britain’s most creative architects.
With “Around the Corner” she created an architectural language of fluid and natural forms.
Each piece was made in a different material to show, through its peculiarities, how the perception of a shape changes according to the material in which it is conceived.
