Exhibition: Architects at Play. Brussels, 18 October 2019 – 9 February 2020

C I.II.III.IV. A, Rue de l’Ermitage 55, 1050 Brussels
Man is a playful architect. From the solitary hut to the cosmopolitan arch, by playing man builds worlds he inhabits or in which he cohabits. Sometimes these ephemeral playgrounds crystalize and form the permanent stage of our lives, the horizon of our habits. This power of the imagination is at the heart of the exhibition Architects at Play, in which childhood playgrounds meet those of architects, artists and designers. The journey through four playful worlds – labyrinths, symbolic toys, construction games and strategy games – presents different ways of making worlds. In this journey to the land of representations, a special focus on Brussels playgrounds questions the integration in the common/public space of these imaginary and imagined worlds.
Curator: David Malaud
