DESIGN BY ARCHITECTS – ARCHITECTURE BY DESIGNERS
This autumn Cityscapes Gallery launches XS ARCHITECTURE, a new platform for architecturally-related products – items that have clear architectural features but steer away from the traditional notion that architects only design buildings.

XS ARCHITECTURE kicks off from August 30th to September 1th at GM8 with the XS ARCHITECTURE MARKET – an event which will show and sell innovative products, objects and prototypes designed by architects and artists and designers that demonstrate a link to the world of architecture. The selection ranges from functional products such as chairs, lamps and textiles to objects that have no other function then to trigger the mind.

EXTRA SMALL & ACCESSIBLE ARCHITECTURE
While architecture is often large, heavy and immobile, XS ARCHITECTURE shows another kind of architecture that is small, light and mobile. Searching for new tasks architects turn to small-scale projects and products that they can develop and make themselves. Although trained to think large, architects express their thoughts remarkably well in small-scale products. In the end we might remember Mies, Corbu and Aalto better for their chairs than for their buildings.

XS ARCHITECTURE shows more than a shift to small-scale products to survive the current collapse of the building industry. The exhibition also demonstrates a quest for new forms and applications to make architecture more accessible, usable and understandable.

GM8
XS ARCHITECTURE MARKET takes place at GM8 at the Museumplein during the Uitmarkt Festival. The exhibition spreads over the building: in the main exhibition-space on the second floor and the adjacent rooms of Cityscapes Gallery and Non-Fiction. Also Gallery Johan Deumens shows an exhibition that is related to XS ARCHITECTURE.
