Begin Again. Fail Better – preliminary drawings in architecture (and art)

The group exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Olten is created in collaboration with the architects Manuel Montenegro (PT), Helen Thomas (GB) and Marco Bakker (CH/NL), the Drawing Matter Foundation (GB) and the archives of Swiss architecture schools, as well as over 50 practising Swiss architecture firms. The project deals with a medium that is of equal interest to architecture and the visual arts, with drawing, which manifests initial thoughts and serves as a collector of ideas for projects.
