Eleven projects of the Projektil architectural studio in the hands of leading contemporary photographers and artists

 

If writing about music is like dancing about architecture, what is photographing architecture? And what about drawing, painting, or video? Where they jump ahead of each other, who dances solo, and whose feet get trod upon? It is apropos that the exhibition pushes the limits of depicting architecture on projects by a studio that has made a name with prizes for the National Technical Library in Prague, the Science Library in Hradec Králové, or the Sluňákov eco-centre, as well as an ongoing interest in the public space and open multi-disciplinary collaboration. Selection of the most interesting contemporary artists and photographers whose work doesn’t usually concern architecture and their very varied focus on Projektils’s educational institutions, museums, or parks as prerequisites that define what life will be like, dismantle the widespread conventions of architectural photography that favours impressive empty forms. 


They are accompanied by texts by exhibition curator Michal Nanoru.
