Architecture in the Ronald and Rita McAulay Gallery is a new free exhibition space at the heart of the RA. This ambitious installation features Hejduk’s design for the Widow’s House, one of 68 “objects” in his seminal Lancaster / Hanover Masque, brought to life. ‘London Masque’ was developed in collaboration with students from the Royal College of Art MA Interior Design programme. During the life of the London Masque a series of workshops will explore Hejduk’s Lancaster / Hanover Masque and the resulting models and drawings will be displayed alongside the Widow’s House.
Curator Vicky Richardson was delighted to be able to use charcoal coloured PaperStone® as the cladding material for the 4.7-metre-high structure, reducing its environmental impact and evoking the ‘Paper Architecture’ of Hejduk, who was a prolific drawer.
CDUK supplies sustainable surface material produced from FSC certified recycled paper and cardboard, which responded explicitly to the brief. The Widow’s House’ is made from a new generation sustainable material, PaperStone® which is a composite surface made from recycled paper and a natural resin; it has a unique textured effect that creates an organic warmth.
