A large-scale retrospective of Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Renzo Piano. The Italian is a huge deal - think London's Shard tower, and in the US, The New York Times Building. The exhibition at PSA promises to explore the relationship between Piano's materials, structures and settings.

Born in Shanghai in 1939, Michael Chow is the son of Zhou Xinfang, celebrated Beijing opera master and founder of the Qi School of performance. Organized to coincide with 120th anniversary of his father's birth, Chow's solo explores the acclaimed restaurateur's return to his artistic roots after a 46-year hiatus. Comprising large-scale paintings, as well as new works created especially for the exhibition, Chow blends elements of traditional Chinese art, Western abstract expressionism, and the bold gestures of Qi School Beijing opera.

PSA hosts a retrospective of models and sketches by legendary architect, Yona Friedman, best known for his theory of 'mobile architecture'. The 1950s concept challenged conventional thought by stating that architects must learn from residents, that residents alone determine architectural and urban planning, and that architecture should be a framework capable of responding to social systems. A show of two halves, the first charts the development of Mobile Architecture theory; while the second explores improvisation as a possibility in architecture. As part of the show, PSA are launching Street Museum, an organic space open to all and for public art works of all kind. Click here to get involved with that, or email street[at]
