Cultural Formations

Cultural Formations brings together a selection of our practice’s most significant cultural and urban projects from the last 20 years. Each of these works translates specific social histories, urban archetypes and iconographies into contemporary space and form while at the same time celebrating architectural craft.
The exhibition includes models, photography, drawings and other imagery to provide a window into the practice’s project of cultural formation, whereby the role of architecture is to communicate both an enduring civic generosity and an expressive language particular to its place and time.
