The exhibition Experimental Diagramming. Between Spatial Figuration and Abstraction, curated by Lidia Gasperoni and Sarah Gretsch from the Department of Architecture Theory with Anna Hougaard, will open on the 12th of Decemeber in the Galerie of the Architekturmuseum TU Berlin. It will run from December 13th until February 13th, 2020. 

Over the past decades the diagram has developed into a constitutive, generative medium for architectural design. The diagram as a visual medium facilitates a generative translation of perceived configurations in the thinking process of architecture and vice versa. Yet, today this meaning of diagram has almost disappeared in the everyday use of this word. This exhibition presents an experimental use of diagrams that reveals their performative and transformative essence, rediscovering and presenting new experimental practices of diagramming architecture.
