We are pleased to announce that we are curating an exhibition that will open in September at the Archizoom Gallery (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In an age characterised by the increasing dematerialisation of cultural production and transmission, Database, Network, Interface explores architecture’s historical role in representing and organising information and knowledge.
The exhibition analyses architecture’s ability to structure the access to information and physically construct relationships between content through spatial, typological and structural organisation. Through analogical associations, specific architectural elements (walls, windows, stairs) and drawings (plans, sections, elevations) may be seen as structuring instruments that define, communicate or give order to content.
The exhibition borrows the notions of “database”, “network” and “interface” from the vocabulary of information technology and interprets them through the lens of the architectural discipline.
The chapters and the case studies in the exhibition relate to the three notions, constructing analogies between architecture and other fields of studies related to information.
