Exhibition

Say Himmelb(l)au

30 October 2014 to 08 March 2015

In 1994, the renowned Austrian architectural office Coop Himmelb(l)au designed the pavilion of the same name for the Groninger Museum. The architects, Wolf Prix and Helmut Swiczinsky, began by making so-called ‘automatic sketches’, with their eyes closed. The Coop Himmelb(l)au pavilion resembles a blown-up sculpture on the pedestal of the Mendini pavilions. The architecture of Coop Himmelb(l)au has been classified under Deconstructivism. Since the eighties, the Coop Himmelb(l)au office has received many international awards, for individual projects as well as for the company itself. The exhibition presents various scale models and sketches by the architects.
