This edition of Prototypes and Experiments looks at the architectural process. We’ve asked a selection of practices to share how they use physical models as part of a design’s development. The exhibits will show a range of uses for models in practice – not just for presentation, but to explore ideas, evoke the feeling of a space, or arrive at a point of decision making. The models on display will be a mix of massing studies, construction models and façade studies at a range of scales. The exhibition will also include other physical artefacts from the design process: colour tests, material palettes, 1:1 mock ups, and prototype elements.
In tune with the gallery’s interest in how designers think, plan and communicate three-dimensionally, each exhibitor will present the process of single project. An accompanying commentary will explain the purpose of each exercise, its meaning to the final work, and how it assisted the designer with making decisions along the way.
This exhibition series has been ongoing at The Aram Gallery since 2008, asking participants from a range of disciplines to show ideas in development and give us an understanding of their creative process.
