Exhibition, On Show from January 2015 - March 2015

My Role: assistant exhibition designer

Metamaquette is an exhibition about the art-research methodology of Zenovia Toloudi/Studio Z investigating installations as prototypes for architectural production. Being a composite word that derives from the Greek μετά/meta, and the French maquette, metamaquette literally translates as after/post/among/beyond the model. Often constructed in physical scale, with durable materials, and structural integrity, metamaquette projects occupy the phase of the architectural process after the cardboard model and before “going out” to the built world. Swinging between the real and its representation, metamaquette is a collection of interdisciplinary experiments/experiences aiming to exit the laboratory/gallery by transforming themselves from art exhibits to built architectural examples.
