Exploring the underlying connections between architecture and machines. Having penetrated contemporary life to near invisibility the machine in architectural thought is more elusive than its mechanical image would suggest. In this exhibition various perspectives on the machine in architecture are critically examined through drawings, photographs, objects, film and contextual texts.
Out of this exhibition a a limited edition post-exhibition catalogue was launched at the Redundant Architects Recreation Association (RARA) event. The catalogue was assembled and vacuum packed live (with assorted objects) and accompanied by a BBQ.
Edited by University of Brighton Lecturer in Architecture Ben Sweeting and containing contributions from exhibitors Mike Aling, Tom Foulsham, Ersi Ioannidou, Glenn Longden-Thurgood, Tim Norman, Charlotte Raleigh and Michael Wihart, the catalogue is the next step in an ongoing collaborative research project speculating on the underlying relationships behind architecture's various invocations of machines.
