”Looking from outside into an open window one never sees as much as when one looks through a closed window” is a quote from the poem “Windows” by Charles Baudelaire.
Living in different places brings common objects into a renewed state of awareness. Differently, to the impression that imagination is solely activated by novelty, this exhibition celebrates a common architectural element found anywhere: the window. In its universal presence, the window is also a character of particularities. Under such condition, the far and the near meet and converse, constituting places for recollection, discovery and ultimately, the architectural imagination.
The exhibition ‘VINDUER: Parallel Particulars’ is an ode to windows. The author, Carolina Dayer, was born and lived in Argentina for 24 years. During the last 24 months, she has been living in Denmark. Carolina Dayer teaches at the Aarhus School of Architecture and is the Associate Editor of Design for the Journal of Architectural Education in the USA. She is a licensed architect in her native country, Argentina. Her research, teaching, and original work centres on bridging theory and practice in architecture through conception and demonstration. Additionally, she has published, lectured internationally, and organized symposia on matters of the imagination and drawing practices. She recently published her co-edited book entitled Confabulations: Storytelling in Architecture (Routledge) and is currently working on her latest co-edited book Activism in Architecture: The Bright Dreams of Passive Energy Design to be published in 2018. Her personal design work has been exhibited in Argentina, the United States and Denmark.
The exhibition will consist of:
9 drawings by the author
These drawings are reconstructions and impressions of Danish windows, a graphic celebration of their aura and presence within the city.
9 sets of photographs by Milagros Sánchez Azcona
These photographs are snapshots of windows from Mendoza, the city where the author was born and raised.
9 short talks by
Anders Gammelgaard Nielsen
Nacho Ruiz Allen
These talks are testimonies of architects’ memories, reflections and observations of windows from here and somewhere else.
