Three projects each from the eight offices are arranged in a matrix. The position of a particular project suggests a theme specific to the architectural aspect the project engages in and helps draw a comparison with the other projects in the same theme. The result is an ‘urban spatial environment’, of tables and portals depending on the displayed content that allows the viewers the freedom to construct their own experience and views.
The project proceeded through the following stages:
Research and Curation
It involved the archival analysis of the offices, project selection, and defining the exhibition content through large informal discussions.
Design and Construction
It involved the procurement of materials from sponsors, processing, and production of parts, and the final arrangement of the content.
It involved the students through discussions with the architects of the displayed firms and with the public through interviews and an Instagram competition on the city’s architecture.
The outcome was designed to be a traveling exhibition. The various components were designed to be modular for easy assembly and transport. The exhibition was iterated at the Dutch Design Week 2016, and in the Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam. s.
