What role can history play in contemporary architecture practice? Rather than adopting a postmodern attitude or evoking past discussions and historical architectural forms, Go Hasegawa, Kersten Geers, and David Van Severen address contemporary issues in their work while remaining in dialogue with history. Even with distinct pasts and contexts, affinities emerge in shared concerns and approaches.
In this exhibition, the architects reread, redraw, translate, and appropriate from the past and from each other in order to construct relationships and meaning out of a constellation of references. History becomes something that can be used rather than just studied.
