Exhibition at The Cass reveals results of CAMPO research project exploring the idea of ‘Dream Beds’
Date: 22 March 2018
Everything Out the Door, opening on the 15 March 2018 at The Cass, London Metropolitan University, is an architectural exhibition organised by CAMPO - an architectural, exhibition and debate space in Rome - and Black Square Press which follows on from a workshop and exhibition produced at the CAMPO space in Rome in September 2017.
CAMPO asked a selection of contemporary architecture collectives to put forward their own idea for a ‘Dream Bed’. The research project was a reflection on the Dream Beds, a project by Archizoom of 1967 that intended to contaminate the domestic space with all the aspects of life that modern culture had rejected. Each participant was asked to provide 10 images commented on with 10 short texts, which take on the ideal bedroom, intended as the minimum space through which we can construct an idea of architecture.
Objets trouvés, personal cabinets of curiosities, speculative projects: these ten images construct visual essays of sorts on what we left out the door - and what we wish to bring back in to challenge our lives and conventions. The images represent objects, people, textures, materials, elements of furniture, surfaces, atmospheres, other architectures, other places, other rooms.
The workshop participants, using Rome as a source of inspiration then realized 1:10 models of these ideal rooms, not be shown to the public, but only used as a stage set to be photographed.
The exhibition at The Cass, curated by Matteo Costanzo and Maria S. Giudici displays the outcomes of this research project and workshop.
