the marcel breuer exhibition at the lighthouse is excellent, a real architects exhibition with, unbelievably, drawings, models, text you can understand and non of the interactive, cliched narrative smoke and mirror stuff that's the norm for architectural exhibitions these days.
go see it.

I know what you mean about not putting in loads of bullshit, but I do feel like I didn't really get a feeling for what it would be like to be in one of his buildings. And I really do think that it was a shame that the two halves of the exhibition (furniture and buildings) was so decisively split, which is not helped by the layout of the Lighthouse itself. It was almost impossible to see if there was any particular connection between the two.
But - I recommend it. Despite my criticism, I know so much more about him than I did, and I really enjoyed it. Go.
