Stagecraft: Models and Photos
Exhibition Graphics and Publication
Art Direction by MTWTF
For the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery
Stagecraft: Models and Photos revisits the material legacy of Kenneth Frampton's course Studies in Tectonic Culture. It looks back in order to project forward and asks how the construction of architectural history through the making of models might generate new histories, practices, and ways of seeing.
The sixteen photographs by James Ewing are enclosed in the publication and reveal the possibilities of Frampton's radical approach today. Each image re-engages with a model built during Frampton's seminar, but, by playing with the potentials of photography, also aspires to express new poetic realities.
