“miniatures and landscapes” model exhibition at BALTSprojects

The exhibition miniatures and landscapes shows a series of large-scale models, which attempt to miniaturize architectural space or spatial systems. A university building, a residential block, a sports hall – each model was built in scale of 1:50, 1:20 or 1:33.

A series of photographs projected onto the wall poses a dynamic pole to the presence of the large-scale models. The photographs depict rural, as well as urban landscapes, through which the architectural models move – Spaces and spatial systems are set in motion, and become ar-chitecture rather than remain architecture.
