DEATH OF

ARCHITECTURE

(2018)

Death Of Architecture

A travelling exhibition put together by 13 firms, Death of Architecture was intended as a provocation - not only with regards to the state of architecture in the country, but the very processes that are involved in practicing the profession.

Not intended to be about the individual, it was designed to start conversations that involved practicing professionals and students alike.

Through their approach and easy accessibility, the host spaces became open, consultative forums for dialogue - with the exhibition acting as a tool; a take-off point. It acknowledged the significance of architecture in ideas of nostalgia, design of cities, beauty and aesthetics, and creation of public places, amongst others.

It hoped to bring home the fact that the seeming abdication of responsibility at various levels has impacted architecture’s ability to communicate ideas of culture, and the times we live in. The various conversations that accompanied the exhibition ensured that the discourse extended itself to individuals outside the profession as well.
