With AP Valletta for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale

The “cabinet of curiosities” recollects objects and images from AP’s 25-years-old memory, allows for a viewing – not of architecture projects – but ‘the coming-into-being’ of multiple social narratives particular to its projects. The installation displays the transformational capacities implicit to architectural practice where each project evolves from and towards the construction of a social space. The cabinet was shown at the Venice Biennale’s 15th International Architecture Exhibition, forming forms part of a series of collateral events under the title Time Space Existence.
