WINNER (First Prize), 2016 BEST OF DESIGN AWARD, The Architect's Newspaper
Prepared for the 2016 Architectural League Prize exhibition, Nine Drawings, Seven Models installation is comprised of nine 80X70cm drawings and seven 30X30X40cm models. Combining NEMESTUDIO's most recent projects altogether in a fictional setting, nine drawings depict one continuous imaginary territory. Similar to a cappricio painting where architectural ruins are collected and compressed in an imaginary time and space, the observers are invited to experience and imagine our recent work all together in the landscape of one large drawing. In the drawing, each NEMESTUDIO project lands onto this imaginary territory with its original context. As each project gains a new specificity or resolution such as a new detail, a new program or a new design feature, the projects build novel relationships among themselves through their contextual adjacency on this territory. While depicting one continuous canvas together, each one of the nine drawings uses a particular oblique projection (plan, elevation or cavalier) and complicates the part-to-whole relationship of the collective canvas. The models presented in the installation demonstrate the elemental language and the typological variations of our currently ongoing projects.
