Back in 2002 in the exhibition “thinking + working”, Topotek 1 set up in Aedes Gallery, Berlin, bringing our desks, chairs and working tools right onto the gallery floor, offering a glimpse into the process of our working.
This year in 2016, with a focus on collaboration, our office turns into a gallery space. The exhibition will showcase a selection of work by Topotek 1’s partners, highlighting the work of those we have had the joy to collaborate with along the way.
Pieces for the exhibition include, among others: the original large-scale model of MVRDV’s renowned Rotterdam Markthal project; views of our collaborative project Superkilen from the perspective of Dutch architectural photographer Iwan Baan; Yvonne by artist Rosemarie Trockel; from the artistic and architectural Viennese group Haus-Rucker-Co, a 1986 original chalk drawing; screenings of the short film Paris Syndrome, from visual artist Jun Yang; and from Bijarke Ingles Group, the site model of Basin 7 (BSN7) plan for a new mixed-use neighbourhood in Aarhus Denmark.
For the duration of the exhibition the office will thus take on a dual function, serving as both workspace and exhibition area.
