SWEETING, BEN and LONGDEN-THURGOOD, GLENN (2010) Invisible Machines [Exhibition]
Architects like to invoke machines and do so in numerous ways. This dates back not just to the modern movement’s obsession with the machine but to Book X of Vitruvius while more recently machines have become popular in architecture schools perhaps to the point of oversaturation. Although there is much that has been written on the subject of architecture and machines much of this has dealt only with specific aspects and there is therefore a sense in which the subject has only been approached fragmentarily. The idea of this exhibition is to explore the underlying connections between the different interpretations of the machine in relation to architecture.
