Collection d’éditions de dessins et de maquettes d’architecte

Past: October 12 → 27, 2013

The idea

Drawings and models are the cornerstones of architectural design. Spaces are created, concepts are depicted, and thoughts are expressed in the language of drawings and models — sometimes in concert, sometimes separately, but always indispensable to the genesis of an architectural project.

After almost fourteen years of organizing architecture exhibitions, la galerie d’architecture is now offering a new way to appreciate drawings and models. Taken from their original context, relieved of their pedagogical function, drawings and models can be viewed differently and considered, if the spectator so desires, works of art.

The limited editions

Àlvaro Siza has agreed to inaugurate this exceptional collection of architectural drawings. Àlvaro Siza’s drawings are issued in three limited editions of signed and numbered prints.

Models designed by the agency Tank and by Camilo Rebelo express another way of situating architecture, of materializing a thought, of achieving anchorage in a territory.

A video “drawn” by Nicolas Reymond responds to Siza’s work, a homage and another vision or approach, for architectures for a new century. These pieces are available in a limited edition.
