Venue: Tchoban Foundation – Museum for Architectural Drawing
Address: Christinenstraße 18a, 10119 Berlin
Duration: 28th June – 3rd October 2014
The Museum for Architectural Drawing presents ‘Lebbeus Woods, ON-line’, an exhibition of the finest works of architectural theorist, draftsman, educator and architect Lebbeus Woods (1940–2012). Curated by Woods’ longtime friend and partner Christoph a. Kumpusch, the exhibition brings together a collection of visionary works, such as the intensely rendered architectural and urban environments produced in early years, that have never been exhibited before. These ink and pencil drawings cover a wide range of Woods’ research and re-imagination of cities both real and fictive and support Woods’ longstanding desire to show the capacity of architecture as a transformative and eloquent force.
By focusing on the diverse characteristics of his line work, the show demonstrates Woods’ complete investment in drawing as the most forceful, evocative and uniquely architectural mode of communication. Colour, tone, shade and shadow are deployed both in the service of clarity and the evocation of atmosphere. These works are forceful and fragile at the same time, imbued with the author’s singular language and conviction that drawings can say things words cannot.
A symposium in collaboration between the Tchoban Foundation and Aedes Network Campus Berlin will feature ‘Lebbeus Woods, ON-line’. It takes place at ANCB on the 28th June, 2014 at 4 pm right next to the Museum for Architectural Drawing, amongst the speakers are Hani Rashid, Kimberli Meyer, Dr Neil Spiller and Dr Christoph a. Kumpusch.
