A building’s design incorporates countless other findings as well, from experiences gained from the development of previous projects to critical considerations on general architectural issues. The latter are particularly important, since architects are involved in a permanent process of cultural reflection. Documenting this process in a sketchbook is a centuries-old tradition. This collection of associative and documentary entries often culminates in the emergence of one’s own conceptual universe. It is this issue in particular that OBRA Architects have made the focal point of their exhibition. With their abundance of drawings and notes, sketchbooks can be read as a critical commentary on the architectural projects they address. Pablo Castro and Jennifer Lee take this a (crucial) step further: instead of customarily showing single open spreads, they take apart the sketchbooks and rearrange the pages into tableaus.
