This Year's Models

Friday, August 3, 2012

Periods of economic depression and lack of construction often lead to moments of reflection and reassessment in architecture, and the current European crisis is no exception. As in previous such periods modes of representation come to the fore and it is therefore no surprise that two great European architectural collections are currently hosting exhibitions focussing on architectural models.

In Frankfurt-am-Main, the German Architecture Museum is hosting Architectural Model: Tool, Fetish, Small Utopia from 25 May -16 September 2012
There is a short video on current techniques here

And in Rome MAXXI is hosting Modelli Models from 19 July - 2 April 2013
There is a short video (in Italian) on the exhibition here
