Land Architecture People Exhibition at Ambika P3
Assistant at Pierre d’Avoine Architects
An exhibition by architects Pierre d’Avoine and Andrew Houlton in collaboration with anthropologist Clare Melhuish 25 June - 1 August 2010
Land Architecture People is a major exhibition which offers behind-the-scenes insights into how buildings are made - from the myterious rules
and conditions of land ownership through to the symbiotic relationship between architect and client. Conceived by award-winning architects
Pierre d’Avoine and Andrew Houlton in collaboration with anthropologist Clare Melhuish, the show dispels some of the mystique around the
architectural design process.
The exhibition explores the scope of the 'one off', as well as the potential for repitition and serial production, both within and beyond the realm
of domestic architecture. It shows a selection of built andf unbuilt projects of different scales by Pierre d'Avoine Architects and Houlton
Architects, including some collaborations. At the centre of the show is a striking group of twelve models. They are complemented by drawings,
pattern books, maquettes, writings, photographs, and films. Clare Melhuish has specially interviewed a number of clients about their aims
and aspirations for their projects and their relationship with the architect. Transcipts of the interviews will be shown alongside photo portraits
of the clients, uniquely emphasising the significance of the relationship between the different players in the design process.
