WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION 5
The exhibition accompanying the fifth edition of the WARSAW under CONSTRUCTION festival – “Profession: Architect” – was held on two floors of the Historical Museum of the capital city of Warsaw located at Rynek Starego Miasta 28-42.
The exhibition is a proposal for entering into the world of everyday work of architects and learning the language of architectural design. We are interested in decisions taken in the comfort of the studio, while sitting in front of the computer or at a meeting with a client. These decisions are essential to the development of any building and the future of the city. Choices made by architects are materialised in space.
One of the activities inherent to architecture is drawing. The reality of contemporary design, created with the help of modern software, has served as an inspiration for the arrangement of the exhibition by the 137 kilo studio. Visitors to the exhibition are always accompanied by a theme taken from the symbolism of technical projects. We are able to penetrate the black and white, computer-generated printout of a drawing thanks to the graphic symbols representing, for instance, glass, steel or stone. They have inspired the setting of the individual exhibition rooms (e.g.: the marking of the floor has been linked to the WSM’s public spirit, and insulation to the issues of professional ethics of architects).
