WIP Show 2018


In the first term ADS10 used the Archive as a conceptual and methodological tool to construct system of meanings to which the architectural project will be called to give form, representation and organization in the second part of the year. Archives are constellations ofobjects, documents and information linked by a bond: the concrete manifestation of a specific field of enquiry and at the same time a position within this field. Bringing together the fiction of narratives, the technical precision of drawings or models and the evocative dimension of images, Archivesconstruct a detachment from the historical reality that allows for a critique of the existing conditions to be combined with the proposal of radical scenarios: as such the Archive escapes the dangers of historicism and turns history into a horizon of liberation.
