Description

Exhibition Design: Representation + Critical Inquiry: It has been said that architects do not build buildings but make drawings. In the making of drawings and models architects craft a narrative about the project. They create representations – ideas, instructions, meanings - to support and align with the narrative. The exhibition oscillates between the realm of representation and the realm of the real. It is an opportunity to work at full scale to craft a narrative about the objects on display as well as the tactile and spatial experience between those objects with an audience. Microhousing varies from small scale urban affordable housing (150-300sf) to individual, free standing units some of which have been adopted as housing for the homeless. This exhibition looks at the history of microhousing focusing on the free-standing applications as well as posits a series of new free-standing units that work in tandem to create a sustainable and affordable community.
