SO – IL'S EXHIBITION VIDEO SNEAK PEEK
This video, commissioned to Rita Nunes, introduces the exhibition Currents. Temporary Architectures by SO – IL that was specially conceived to be included in Beeline, the major architectural intervention by SO – IL occupying the entirety of maat’s building, and previews some of the twelve projects included in it.
Currents. Temporary Architectures by SO – IL (maat, 10/06/2020 – 11/01/2021) is a timely reflection on discreet but poignant gestures that interrogate the very nature of architecture as a cultural practice, both as agency and artefact. Twelve of the temporary projects the studio has formulated over the past decade are organised in six thematic pairs, or “currents”, bringing to the fore subjects the studio explores in its work.
Founded in New York in 2008, SO – IL is an architectural studio led by Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu that not only produces permanent buildings but also thinks about architecture in relation to time and duration.
