“A plan calls for the most active imagination,” wrote Le Corbusier in Towards A New Architecture. To Le Corbusier, the plan was essential to any architectural project and its agency comparable to that of a generator. Indeed, historically speaking, plans, whether they are floor plans, site plans or others, have been of unquestionable importance to the discipline of architecture. Yet, what is the agency of the plan today? May we still consider it a generator, a promotor of our imagination, or with the advent of digital design possibilities, has it merely lost its previous status as a privileged tool for developing and communicating about architecture? 

The exhibition shows a number of international examples of architectural drawing with particular emphasis on the plan drawing. It is arranged in relation to the conference Drawing Millions of Plan which invites scholars and practitioners to examine and discuss the role of architectural drawing today. 

The exhibition opens on 1 November at 18:45h. Everyone is welcome at the opening.
