exhibition: “What does it mean to make an experiment?”

Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 51
In architecture and design the experiment is a particular mode of exploring the multiple and heterogeneous intersections that emerge from social, conceptual, technological, material and cultural contexts in which it is sited. These experimental practices find interesting parallels in the natural-science context. With a focus on material and computation the exhibition discusses how experimental practices through design, drawing, modelling, prototyping and building generate sites of making and reflection as well as of synthesis and innovation.
The Exhibition showcases results from a 2 year research project between the Schools of architecture and design at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts and hosts projects from the member of the academies Center for IT and Architecture, Architecture School (CITA), SuperFormLab and Department of Textiles: Paul Nicholas; Jacob Riiber; Flemming Tvede Hansen; Malene Kristiansen; Mary Ann Hansen; Phil Ayres; Martin Tamke; Henrik Leander Evers; Claus Rytter Bruun de Neergaard; Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen; and David Stasiuk.
