EXHIBITION OPENING – BOOK FOR ARCHITECTS
29.09.2015 ALICE EPFL is part of the exhibition opening Book for Architects at the ETH Zurich curated by Fredi Fischli, Andri Gerber and Niels Olsen. The opening will be on Tuesday, 29 September 2015, 6 pm at ETH Zurich, Hönggerberg, HIL, E1. There will be a talk with Arno Brandlhuber and Christian Kerez, moderated by Stephan Trüby.
Architects write books, read books, love books and collect books. Books loom large for architects – books that endeavor to talk about architecture, books that are a source of inspiration, a forum for polemics, an expression of dreams, wishful thinking and so much more. This exhibition showcases a historical selection of special “books for architects” as well as commentary on books by contemporary architects, historians and theorists, who, in various forms, conceptually and concretely explore a great many aspects of books for architects. Selected items are spatially arranged within the exhibition, moreover, for a mise en scène of reading, writing and collecting books.
