exhibition project EXHIBITION.1.0 | ZEZEZE architecture gallery

competition brief:

'architecture, however, remains isolated and alone. the problem of how to represent space...has not as yet been even stated. since up to now there has been no clear conception or definition of the nature and consistency of architectural space, the need for its representation and mass diffusion has consequently not been felt...

...there is no doubt that although we may never succeed in discovering a method of fully rendering a conception of space in a plan, we shall nevertheless achieve better results in ... learning how to understand space and how to look at architecture by analyzing and discussing the means we have...' (architecture as space: how to look at architecture, bruno zevi, 1947)

'architecture is not produced simply by adding plans and sections to elevations. It is something else and something more. it is impossible to explain precisely what it is – its limits are by no means well defined. on the whole, architecture should not be explained; it must be experienced'. (experiencing architecture, steen eiler rasmussen, 1964)

purpose of the competition

'this competition seeks to enoucrage suggestions and solutions to the elusive combination between the creation of an architectural spatial experience in the space of the architecture gallery, a predefined space with clear characteristics, combined with the contents of an exhibition containing architectural work by the planners. this exhibition must combine two seemingly disparate themes – the presentation of a preselected body of work in the gallery space; the creation of an architectural and spatial experience examining the purpose and abilities of the gallery of architecture, a dedicated physical space, and its continuing purposeful role in contemporary times.'
