Drawing and Projects at Antonia Jannone architectural gallery

During the upcoming Design Week, 2A+P/A will present the exhibition “Drawings and Projects” in the historic Antonia Jannone architectural gallery. A collection of projects, images, illustrations and photographs brought together in the gallery’s spaces to portray the poetic research of the studio.

Every work on display investigates other projects and tries to affirm an idea of architecture as a form of collective knowledge. The office’s two partners, Gianfranco Bombaci and Matteo Costanzo, explore the potential of architectural projects through non-philological reference samples that derive from a range of disciplines and include objects, paintings, buildings, sculptures and weavings. Architecture thus becomes a research tool for understanding reality and at the same time for giving shape and space to the
collective rites of the present times.

The exhibition shows the juxtaposition of two bodies of work. One wall hosts the series called “36 drawings”, first created for the Biennale of Orléans and commissioned by the Frac Centre-Val de Loire. The opposite wall presents a selection of projects chosen to exemplify the type of work undertaken by 2A+P/A during its ten years of activity: finished work, competition projects, exhibition pavilions and installations.

During the exhibition the gallery will also host a talk on the role and value of architectural drawing in the present day.
