Evolution of Space, Deutsches Architektur Museum


Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 2006

The exhibition shows the products of 18 years of architectural practice, arranged not according to typology or chronology, but according to a more personal line of development. The gallery space has been converted into a three-dimensional graphic, charting the progress of our work in relation to five different design standards invented by UNStudio. The three models and two principles incorporate the most central values of architecture: construction, sensory experience and organization. Each offers a new characteristic spatial resolution, which can be adapted to different circumstances. The wavy, perpendicular lines dividing the room hold the various applications of these standards in a range of projects.
