Curator-led Tour of The Cosmic House

The Cosmic House

2.00 – 3.30 pm, 23 October 2023

Please join us on the 23rd of October for a curator-led tour of The Cosmic House. The Cosmic House, one of the world’s most important examples of Post-Modern architecture, opened to the public in September 2021. Situated in London’s Holland Park, it became the UK’s first Grade I listed Post-Modern interior. Begun in 1978, the conversion of the house was a collaboration between Charles and Maggie Jencks and the architect Terry Farrell with contributions from Piers Gough, Eduardo Paolozzi, Michael Graves, Celia Scott, Allen Jones and others. Its symbolic architecture, complex iconography and cosmic references are all imbued with Charles’ characteristic learning and wit.
