“Besides, History” examines the role that history plays in contemporary architecture practice. The invited 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. Collected from many historical periods and geographies, these references – Andrea Palladio, John Hejduk, Aldo Rossi, Kazunari Sakamoto, and others – reveal a very different attitude of inquiry, more directly related to the architects’ aesthetic research without becoming strictly operational or literal. The show also features Through Your Eye, an introduction curated by Stefano Graziani, who has photographed key works by both architecture offices.
