Architecture Protoypes and Experiments
The Aram Gallery, London
2 August – 1 September 2018
“Architecture Prototypes and Experiments” shows a variety of physical and spatial models that architects and designers use in their creative work processes.
The models on display serve not only to present ideas, but also to explore them, to evoke the feeling of a space, or arrive at a point of decision-making. The models are used in different areas of architecture, for example, when constructing, capturing dimensions, or designing a facade. Other artefacts used in the design process, such as colour tests, prototype elements, and construction models are also on display. The aim of the exhibition is to give visitors an understanding of how architects think, plan, and communicate through their working models. In separate projects, each exhibitor will illustrate how models are helpful in relation to their final product and decision-making during the work process. This exhibition is part of a series that has been running since 2008 and in which artists from various disciplines explain their product development methods and the creative process behind them.
