Tom Wiscombe Architecture presents Tectonic Fictions: The Main Museum of Los Angeles Art- in the 2016 SCI—Arc Close-up Exhibition.
The exhibition will examine the impact of digital technologies on the architectural detail and the traditions of tectonic expression associated with it. Curated by Hernan Diaz Alonso and David Ruy- the exhibition features 16 prototypes designed by practitioners from a broad range of disciplines. The exhibition remains open through May 29.
''Out of the many critical shifts that the discipline has gone through in the last 25 years with the explosion of new technologies and digital means of production- the notion of the construction detail has been largely overlooked-'' Diaz Alonso said. ''This show attempts to shed light on the subject of tectonic details by employing a fluid and dynamic movement of zooming in and zooming out in the totality of the design.''
