Exhibition: "The Other Architect" (CCA, 28 Oct – 10 Apr 2016)

The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) presents
The Other Architect, an exhibition that emphasizes architecture’s potential to identify the urgent issues of our time. On display are twenty-three case studies dating from the 1960s to today that illustrate how international and often multidisciplinary groups invented and adopted new methods outside of traditional design practices. The Other Architect is on view in the CCA’s main galleries from 28 October 2015 through 10 April 2016.

The Other Architect is organized by CCA’s Chief Curator Giovanna Borasi and presents architects whose work challenged the concept of individual authorship in favor of establishing networks and partnerships with permeable roles. These include AD/AA/Polyark, AMO, Anyone Corporation, Architects Revolutionary Council (ARC), Architectural Detective Agency (ADA), Architecture Machine Group (AMG), Art Net, Atelier de recherche et d’action urbaines (ARAU), Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), CIRCO, Corridart, Delos Symposion, Design-A-Thon, Forensic Architecture, Global Tools, Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies (IAUS), International Laboratory of Architecture and Urban Design (ILAUD), Lightweight Enclosures Unit (LEU), Multiplicity, Kommunen in der Neuen Welt, Pidgeon Audio Visual (PAV), Take Part, and Urban Innovations Group (UIG).
