E Martin Tang - The Manual of Eternal Autumnal Micro-Climates for Kyoto 2012

merging from the context of architecture, the drawing has evolved from a set of basic constructive instructions to a complex notational geometric system - and an independent tool for the expression of utopias. When liberated from convention, fictional architecture becomes an idea which can explore new formal languages, develop idealised structures, form spatial concepts, tells stories and generate atmospheres. Drawing and visualising fictional architecture is a testing ground for ideas and concepts in their purest and most concentrated form. By not aiming to influence the built environment, the drawing unfolds its potential to communicate what has so far merely been imagined. The exhibition explores the selfsufficiency of architectural notation, which is on the verge of becoming an art form in its own right. As universities become the think tanks of the architectural profession, several schools have been invited to share their visions and strategies of imagination. The work displayed in this exhibition offers a key-hole view of the world of ideas and allows a glimpse of the shape that the architecture of the future may take Yumi Saito - Capacitor, Lea Valley, London 2004
