REVOLUTIONS OF CHOICE
With the exhibition Barkow Leibinger – Revolutions of Choice, Haus am Waldsee is presenting the work of the American-German architectural office of Frank Barkow (*1957) and Regine Leibinger (*1963) in the summer of 2020. After GRAFT, Haus-Rucker-Co and J. MAYER H., this is now the fourth internationally outstanding architectural position to reach a large audience at the Waldsee since 2010.
The centre piece of the exhibition in the sculpture park is the newly interpreted pavilion, which Barkow Leibinger developed in 2016 as a „Summer House“ for the Serpentine Gallery in London. In front of the exhibition venue , visitors already come across a passage made of two concrete walls created by a new casting process using infra-lightweight concrete and which are used as an innovative building material by Barkow Leibinger.
In the house itself, shelving extend through the entire ground floor, which show a wealth of material studies and models. Text explanations are provided on the wall surfaces around them. Test ideas, experiments, models and prototypes are displayed and shown in a compressed form. One to one installation scale work can be seen in the rooms on the first floor. Visitors can physically experience this work in a very immediate and tactile way.
