The exhibition sets up a dialogue with the monograph edited by Arquine, collecting a selection of works that reflect on the work carried out in the first ten years of Taller ADG. It covers the contents of the book and goes beyond it, bringing the public closer to the last phase in a project’s representation: the model. We believe the model is the most complete representational expression of an architectural idea previous to the built project, the sum of all its constituting ideas first appearing in three dimensions.
The show presents the works not in a chronological or typological distribution, but allowing the works themselves to be the guiding thread, showing us the aesthetic values of Taller ADG through form, in an honest, transparent way; free of fixed, arbitrary rules.
In Taller ADG models are a fundamental part of a project’s design. They are the first construction model made with executive plans and they provide insight and clarity into a project’s strengths and weaknesses. When making a model it is important to use only neutral materials that will help us understand a project’s pure form as directly as possible.
