BK Expo, TU Delft
Delft, March 27, 2018 - April 19, 2018
The space for BK Expo at TU Delft served for a new iteration of the exhibition The Eindhoven School: a forgotten avant-garde. There, the organization of the exhibition adopted a porous boundary to define its perimeter, while organizing its five thematic zones in a more fluid manner. Given that education was the focus in Delft, the center of the exhibition was marked by a combination of the sections regarding the intellectual context and the faculty, surrounded by the other three sections. The basic organization was thus one of rotation from the center section in order to view the other three sections organized along the periphery which, while physically separated were nevertheless visually connected to the central area.
Equally important for the exhibition’s spatial organization was the play of height and light produced by carefully positioning the display cabinets both underneath and just abutting to the floating mezzanine that determines the BK Expo space. This further enhanced the porosity of the exhibition’s boundaries.
Finally, for the presentation in Delft, the Het Nieuwe Instituut loaned Jo Coenen’s model for the NAi building, which took pride of place at the very center of the architecture production section, being flanked by Bert Staal’s cowchair.
