The Architect's Dream
Composite Presence | Biennale 2021
False Mirror Office’s contribution to Composite Presence, the Belgian Pavilion at the 2021 Architecture Biennale in Venice, curated by Bovenbouw.
From the description:
“The contemporary architect is no longer facing the historical city centre, where he is basically banned from, but with the peripheral and industrial areas. The ordinary, monotonous volumes of the suburbs often host the most avant-garde and experimental activities, also banned from the inner city. Today, The Architect's Dream is to transform these suburban silent structures into new monuments that translate the identity of these brilliant activities into a fantastic set of signifying figures, decorative billboards, platonic-phallic forms, animalier epiphytes and colossal objets trouvés.”
