Prototypology 350 — Spring 2021Kolektiv Cité Radieuse gallery hosted us for our first solo exhibition in Marseille. From the 19th of May to the 13th of June 2021 was presented the Prototypology 350 exhibition at the Unité d’Habitation. A space focusing on the delicate stage where an object is neither realised, finished or produced, a stage where the project usually remains unseen. We aimed to give an in-depth and didactical understanding of our design process to visitors through a series of prototypes, models, drawings, process photographs and in-context visuals of objects we designed at and for the Cité Radieuse.
