barkow leibinger: an atlas of fabrication exhibit


an atlas of fabrication barkow leibinger, berlin architectural association school of architecture, london february 27 – march 27, 2009



today marks the last day for the exhibition ‘an atlas of fabrication’ by german architecture studio barkow leibinger. the exhibit looked at the studio’s interest in material research and machine-tool fabrication. while their research is experimental, the studio integrates new materials, forms and ideas into their final projects. the show aims to demonstrate how the studio favors a material architecture approach, that is one that is at its core determined by the treatment of materials. the exhibit presents the work very casually, mimicking the arrangement of the projects inside the firm’s studio space. a variety of materials and processes are on show, as well as a selection of projects showing how these experiments translate into buildings. one of the highlights is the acrylic tube chandelier which dominates the exhibition space.
