Alternative Histories Auction

Announcing the sale of 35 architectural models by contemporary practices including Caruso St John, Florian Beigel Architects & Lütjens Padmanabhan Architekten

The Architecture Foundation & Drawing Matter announce the auction of 35 architectural models to raise funds for New Architecture Writers

 

Thirty-five architectural models have been donated by Europe's best architects, including Caruso St John, Florian Beigel Architects & Lütjens Padmanabhan Architekten (see full list of models below). Commissioned by Drawing Matter in 2018, the models formed Alternative Histories, an exhibition imagining an exchange with architects from the past. The exhibition invited 80 contemporary practices in the UK and Europe to develop a model in response to one of the historic architectural drawings in the Drawing Matter archive. It was curated by Marius Grootveld and presented in London, Brussels and Dublin between 2018-2020. 

The auction will be hosted by the Architecture Foundation between 15-25 March 2022, with all proceeds going to New Architecture Writers, a free programme for emerging design writers. Each lot will start at £250, and will include a copy of the catalogue of the Alternative Histories exhibition, published by Drawing Matter and designed by Studio Mathias Clottu.


New Architecture Writers

New Architecture Writers is a free programme for emerging design writers, developing the journalistic skill, editorial connections and critical voice of its participants. N.A.W. focuses on people of colour who are under-represented across design journalism and curation. A series of evening workshops, talks, and writing briefs form the core of N.A.W.’s programme with one-to-one mentoring from experienced design critics and editors throughout.
