Building Stories
de vylder vinck taillieu, Maio e Ricardo Bak Gordon

Rodrigo da Costa Lima & Amélia Brandão Costa

Building Stories is an exhibition about what cannot be easily perceived at first glance in architecture: an exhibition about how architecture is produced and built. Building Stories is the representation of an abstract landscape made up of architectural fragments. Like a permanent construction site, it emphasises the dimensions of the exhibition space as if it was a piece of land or a contemporary industrial ruin where it is easy to imagine the cold smell of fresh cement and the sound of heavy machinery. The intent is to transcend the limits of the museum space and focus on architecture as a discipline.
The exhibition ranges from the scale of the territory to the one-to-one, pursuing the architect’s imaginary. Building Stories shows achievements, turning points or simply notes and desires from Architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu, Maio and Ricardo Bak Gordon are shown as live expressions of a much larger universe. The exhibition thus establishes a conversation between these architects who – despite each having their own ideas, methods and formal expression – share architecture as a common ground, weaving their individual and unique approaches together.
