• Prototypes and Experiments VIII

Ooi, Jemma, 2015, Show, Exhibition or Event, Prototypes and Experiments VIII

Abstract or Description:

The eighth edition of Prototypes and Experiments showed models, samples, tests and iterations picked fresh from the studio shelves of 17 architects and designers. This exhibition series has been ongoing at The Aram Gallery since 2008, asking participants from a broad range of disciplines to show ideas in development and give us an understanding of their creative process.

In tune with the gallery’s interest in how designers think, plan and communicate three-dimensionally, each exhibitor presented not just a finished project, but the development work involved. An accompanying commentary explained the purpose of each exercise, its meaning to the final work and how it assisted the designer with making decisions along the way.

Rather than celebrating the end products of creativity, the the aim of Prototypes & Experiments is to encourage reflection on the design process and the many forms, routes and diversions it can take. The ambition is to foster an appreciation of how designers really think and work, and the bulk of usually unseen work that goes into a project.
