Exhibition At Architecture Gallery Berlin
The Architecture Gallery Berlin was founded in 1999 and has been located on Karl-Marx-Allee since 2006. Within the diverse exhibition scene in Berlin, the Architecture Gallery stands out as a forum for engaging with architecture beyond the familiar exhibition setting. Therefore, ideas, proposals and buildings are shown in a conceptual exhibition developed as associative spaces exclusively for the Gallery. The exhibition’s content is based on the eight main projects in our monograph. Eight projects in eight files; enlarged and printed on loose sheets of fine paper. These files are arranged along a long table, which forms the centre of the exhibition, with the free spaces in between filled by a certain material fragment. These materials constitute the projects’ surroundings – to touch and be touched by; to combine; to feel. Every file is accompanied by a reading lamp and a chair: an opportunity for deeper study and concentration. A print on translucent film filters light through the windows, identifying the exhibition from outside and creating a distinctive atmosphere within. Piles of drying timber held together by wooden profiles are a hallmark of the densely forested areas in which we work. Two such piles stand in front of the gallery as a seating area and spatial installation, uniting rural with urban.
