Fonds Lars Spuybroek
The fonds documents the professional practice of architect Lars Spuybroek during his work with the architectural firm NOX from 1995 to 2010, and also includes earlier projects from before the founding of his firm. The fonds includes documents presented at the CCA for the exhibition “Archaeology of the Digital: Media and Machines” in 2014. The archive comprises over 70 projects, predominantly of interactive building projects and public artworks undertaken in Europe, Asia and the United States during his practice with the firm NOX. The projects included in the fonds date from 1989 to 2008. The fonds mainly contains digital material and architectural drawings, including conceptual drawings, design development drawings, presentation drawings (some of which are framed and signed), some working drawings and presentation panels. It also contains photographic material, predominantly slides and a few photographs, and video recordings on VHS and DVD. The fonds also includes a limited number of textual records, including Lars Spuybroek professional correspondence, working files and documents related to his architectural projects.
Only some material in this archive was organized prior to its transfer to the CCA: the digital files (on CDs and DVDs) and some slides were generally organized by project.
CCA archivists then arranged the material into four series : Architectural projects, Public art installations and exhibitions, Reference material, Personal files, and Publications.
Lars Spuybroek was born 16 September 1959 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. He graduated from the Technical University of Delft in 1989. He founded the firm NOX in 1995, working both on architectural projects and public art installations. Spuybroek designed the interactive building Water Pavilion (also known as the Waterpaviljoen or the H2Oexpo) in 1997. The firm NOX was at the forefront in the development of digital design in architecture, and had their work exhibited in a number of international museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. NOX also participated in several editions of the Venice Biennale and was part of the exhibition "Archaeology of the Digital: Media and Machines" held at the Canadian Center for Architecture in 2014.
Lars Spuybroek's archive remained in his custody, housed at his sister's residence in the Netherlands, until its transfer to the CCA in 2013 and 2014.
