Goodwin, Ciriacidis and di Carlo will speak at the 1:1 Symposium, held in conjunction with Het Nieuwe Instituut’s exhibition 1:1 Period Rooms. Goodwin will talk about inviting architects to design 1:1 installations for the exhibition Sensing Spaces for the purpose of making visitors aware of the space around them. Ciriacidis will discuss the 1:1 model of the German chancellor’s bungalow he installed in a pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. Di Carlo will report on her research into processes of displacement in relation to collection, preservation and exhibition methods.
