DISPLAYED SPACES: NEW MEANS OF ARCHITECTURE PRESENTATION THROUGH EXHIBITIONS. Ed. by Roberto Gigliotti. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 216 pp. with 93 ills. (66 col.). 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783944669694 In English.
Publisher's description: Curators of architecture exhibitions are often concerned with the problem of how to present objects that ultimately cannot be brought into the exhibition space. Such shows are often difficult for lay audiences to interpret--little focus is placed on communication. However, there are also architecture exhibits that concentrate on communicating an experience, making it possible to build an intense relationship between the audience and the content on display. This publication focuses on the question of how spaces communicate architectural ideas by using a very specific redevelopment project and accompanying exhibition being proposed for the city of Bolzano, Italy. Bringing together pieces by theoreticians, curators and practitioners involved in exhibition production, Displayed Spaces analyzes contemporary architecture exhibitions. Essays by Giovanna Borasi, Anne Holtrop, Wilfried Kuhn, Emanuela De Cecco, Something Fantastic, Ilka & Andreas Ruby, Andres Lepik and Tina di Carlo and two interviews with Kersten Geers (OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen) and Maarten Gielen (ROTOR).
