The Exhibition as Social Ground

For the practice of architecture, the format of the exhibition provides a rare opportunity. Besides functional and statutory requirements, with minimal means and an audience to play with, the exhibition provides an interesting site where ideas can be tested one on one. Social ideas especially require testing, as their development is depended on live experiments. The essay focuses on the exhibition ‘The Relational in Architecture’ held by the Concrete Geometries Research Cluster at the Architectural Association in 2012; an event that served a dual purpose: as a space of display, contemplating the relationship between architectural form and social behaviour; and as an actual research space, testing directly how spatial geometry can assist in the production of intersubjective encounters.

The Relational in Architecture (exhibition)

This exhibition held by the Concrete Geometries Research Cluster at the Architectural Association in 2012, served a dual purpose: as a space of display, contemplating the relationship between architectural form and social behaviour; and as an actual research space, testing directly how spatial geometry can assist in the production of intersubjective encounters. To explore this, participating artist Fran Cottell developed a site specific intervention that reclaimed the Front Member’s Room as a space of debate and exchange.
