Abraham Thomas - 1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces 2010

Abraham Thomas - 1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces 2010

1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces was a contemporary architecture exhibition exploring the power of small spaces. Running from 15 June - 30 August 2010 at the V&A, a number of international architects were asked to design structures which explored notions of refuge and 'retreat'. These buildings examined themes such as play, work, performance and study and were built at full-scale in various spaces within the V&A.Exhibition curator, Abraham Thomas documented the evolution of the exhibition and offered an insight into the architects' design and construction processes.Archive – this blog closed in 2010
