On 28 September, an extraordinary exhibition will be on show at our office premises in Cologne: the show presents around 100 drawings by renowned and aspiring architects dating from their childhood and youth. Under the title “How we learned to walk…”, early works by many renowned creatives will be on display: bold houses and fantastic rooms, daredevil ideas and colourful creations, crazy concepts and practical ideas. Initiated by the specialist journal AIT, the travelling exhibition will be passing through German planning offices in September and October. As a follow-up, a book publication featuring the exhibited drawings will be published.
What is part of the everyday life of all creative people is usually deeply rooted in childhood imagination. That’s why many architects reached for pen and paper even back then and immersed themselves in their fantasies. But do these early works already show details that today appear as their individual style? And what role do the ideas of that time play in one’s own design process? Against the background of these questions, AIT asked designers from all over Germany to submit drawings from their earliest creative period. The results can be seen on 28 September on the forecourt of our Cologne studio on Schanzenstrasse. Anyone interested can drop by for a snack all day and take a look at the exhibition. We are looking forward to many visitors and a lively exchange.
The exhibition will take place in the covered outdoor space in compliance with the general distancing and hygiene rules.
