Prototypes 9

The Aram Gallery hosts the ninth edition of the “Prototypes and Experiments” exhibition with brand new models, samples, tests and drawings taken from famous studio shelves.



The ninth edition of Prototypes and Experiments will show fresh models, samples, tests and drawings picked from the studio shelves of architects and designers. This exhibition series has been ongoing at The Aram Gallery since 2008, asking participants from a range of disciplines to show ideas in development and give us an understanding of their creative process.


In tune with the gallery’s interest in how designers think, plan and communicate, each exhibitor will present the process of a single project. An accompanying commentary will explain the purpose of each exercise, its meaning to the final work, and how it assisted the designer with making decisions along the way. The ninth edition looks at architectural drawing as a form of experimentation, asking an international selection of contemporary architects for a collage, sketch or drawing that shows how they use the medium to communicate and explore new ideas.
