The exhibition Architecture/33 celebrates a critical and analytical approach to architecture. This approach has been developed within the course of Architecture Analysis over the past thirteen years. The abstracted white models on display come forth from varied perspectives through which realized, unbuilt or demolished pieces of architecture have been analysed. They form a living collection of models that are the result of a quest to analyse architectural works beyond the canonized rhetoric surrounding a design.
For every edition of the course a thematised selection of architectural works has been subjected to the same analytical rigor in which the works are (re)drawn, modeled and discussed; they are picked apart and reassembled, leading to a deeper understanding of their significance to architecture and society. This leads to unexpected readings of architecture and cross connections between seemingly incompatible designs. The models, all scale 1:33, are an essential part of this spatial analysis, as in each of them analytical conclusions and constructed narratives come together. With this exhibition the models are grouped together forming an improbable city, a cadavre exquis which can be explored, generating new narratives.
