In 1956, the exhibition This is Tomorrow opened at the Whitechapel Art Gallery. It included Patio and Pavilion, an installation by Henderson, artist Eduardo Paolozzi and architects Alison and Peter Smithson. This work and the collage alongside were part of Patio and Pavilion. Henderson described the theme of the installation as ‘a little garden, where reflective man may live with his artefacts in a context of nature’. This collage suggests natural cycles of decay and renewal. It was placed on the floor of Patio and Pavilion, partially covered with sand.
