MVRDV, Pig City, concept, research and design, Rotterdam, 2001
Rather, the particular type of architectural imagery displayed in the exhibition tends to highlight the way the spatiality of the new images modifies, under the influence of the visual arts and the breakthroughs in computer and video equipment, the stylistic expression of some todays most forward-looking architects.
We have put together a panel of five architecture firms that are representative of the diversity of contemporary culture and design.
The show will take shape around five drive-in carpets, that is, five white carpets that rise up from the floor against the wall. These comfortable installations invite viewers to enter these livable images both concretely and metaphorically.
