Opening | Lab Cult: An unorthodox history of interchanges between science and architecture. Montreal, 22 March 2018

The CCA invites you to the opening of Lab Cult: An unorthodox history of interchanges between science and architecture, curated by Evangelos Kotsioris, CCA Emerging Curator 2016-2017.
Today, after a long period of questioning science’s capacity to provide answers to architecture’s social mandate, architects and designers are once again enchanted with the concept of the laboratory.
This exhibition investigates the lab as a recurring and productive allegory for experimentation, and imagines new modes of transdisciplinary research threading together science and architecture.
A series of case studies between 1890 and 1980 are presented through archival material from the CCA collection, as well as models, scientific instruments, and photographs on loan from historical and scientific institutions across North America.
