AN INVITATION THAT REPRESENTS AN ARCHITECTURAL PHILOSOPHY.
NAO is an exhibit of independant architectural practices curated by Frank Doheny whose work
focuses on traditional aspects of minimalism juxtaposed with the work of literary minimalists such
as Carver and John Aldridge. The exhibit examines the interplay between literature, architecture
and culture in 10 years intervals from 1940-2010.
Designing a philosophy rather than a ‘thing’ I focused on the theme ‘the architecture of memory’
using the structure of the envelope flaps to ‘dis-member’ and ‘re-member’ the messaging. The
object mediates the dialog with the reader by lacerating language in the same way that time
divides the three disciplines.
