Double or Nothing at The Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana

From 28 June until 2 September, the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana, Slovakia will host an engaging exhibition of work by design studio 51N4E, a Brussels-based practice focusing on architecture, urbanism and spatial analysis. At 5pm on 28 June, one of the studio’s founders, Freek Persyn, will give a lecture introducing the Double or Nothing exhibition.

Dominique Boudet, curator of the display, explains: “The exhibition Double or Nothing expresses a fundamental position of 51N4E: making every project a vector of urban and social transformation. It is about pushing a situation to its limits, to exceed the programme demanded, so as to change behaviour, provoke encounters, enlarge the sphere of influence of the public domain.

“51N4E looks to place urban and social issues in the centre of everything it does, refusing to yield to the trend of over-expressing the materiality of the architecture that dominates the architectural production of recent decades - as testified by the self-referential architecture that invades the urban space (and the reviews) - challenging the marginalisation of the architect as ‘designer’, as deviser of beautiful or spectacular objects.”
