A cooperation between Aedes Network Campus Berlin, ANCB The Metropolitan Laboratory, and the Tchoban Foundation, Museum for Architectural Drawing, on the occasion of the exhibition opening Lebbeus Woods. ON-LINE.

Deeply moved !! I never heard before about Lebbeus Woods. Listening to the closing panel of his compagnions, scholars and former students was really moving. They subsumed and resonnated and in lived what they saw in him, a real raw-modal, an inspiring teacher and great artist, scholar, philosopher, architect, media and sysgtems "guru" who also seems to enjoyed he was teaching, tutoring, creating and performing. On the panel senior and achieved producers, scholars, tutors, architects, artists, what a great of very special "pupils" celebrating and remembering Lebbeus with a great exhibition. For me it all seemed to like meeting virtually another but also very different Alfred Schinz [link] whom I mentioned as my raw-model, the architect-artist of the exact and fine arts.

Being again with architects and artists after all this policy and environment the last days is really rewarding. Great participants and long talks till very late.... I stongly recommend to check out the programme, the exhibition, the panelists and the funding and performing organizations, movers and chakers..

I asked if he was around Feyerabend and Schinz .... and a lot of dee delibarations and encounters around media, signs, architecture, arts, drawings and curating... "evolved", I could even talk about "my" supersigns and multi-modal approaches and superstructures/"model assemblages", and all the turns (linguistic, iconic, schematic, "modelic" TURNS and TURFS...

THANK YOU - THIS WAS ELEVATING like a couple of birthday parties in the garden, with champaign & more ... I feel Lebbeus would have enjoyed it !!

EXHIBITION
Opening: Friday, 27 June, 7:00pm
Dates: 28 June – 3 October 2014
Place: Tchoban Foundation. Museum for Architectural Drawing, Christinenstr. 18a (Pfefferberg), 10119 Berlin

Bringing together a collection of the finest works of architectural theorist, draftsman, educator and architect, Lebbeus Woods (1940–2012), the Museum for Architectural Drawing presents Lebbeus Woods. ON-LINE, curated by his longtime friend and partner Christoph a. Kumpusch. The intensely rendered architectural and urban environments produced early on in Woods’ career are exhibited together for the first time. These ink and pencil drawings cover a wide range of Woods’ research and re-imagination of cities both real and fictive and support Woods’ longstanding desire to show the capacity of architecture as a transformative and eloquent force.

For the first time, Woods’ “4 Cities & Beyond” (1982–1983) projects - including “A City” (1987) and “Centricity” (1987–1988) – are brought together with depictions of “Region M” (1984), “Underground Berlin” (1988) and a design for a “Meta-Institute” (1994–1995). Figuratively floating above and between these locales are Woods’ delicate, metal-plated and cable-laced “Geomagnetic Flying Machines” (1988).

By focusing on the diverse characteristics of his line work, the show demonstrates Woods’ complete investment in drawing as the most forceful, evocative and uniquely architectural mode of communication.

A catalogue will be published. For more information on the exhibition, please visit: www.tchoban-foundation.de.
