  Exhibition   Bigger than a Breadbox, Smaller than a Building is an exhibition that explores the use of installation as an investigation tool and spatial medium in contemporary architectural practice and pedagogy. The exhibition is hosted by the Boston Society of Architects’ BSA Space gallery, featuring works of designers and architects from an international competition under the same name, alongside invited pieces from distinguished local practitioners. The exhibition aims to create dialogue and provoke questions that examine architectural theory, practice, and pedagogy through the medium of installation.

Exhibited at Boston Society of Architects,
Boston, MA, USA | June - October 2015
Firm: Khôra
Principal/Supervisor: Rob Trumbour, Aaron Willette
Role: research, design curation, graphic design

Comparative Mapping


Comparative mapping of high, medium and low levels of interest mapped over time across all six categories beginning in the year 2000. Points furthest from the center of the circle convey peaks of interest. Practice: Projects exploring practice are used to better understand a designer’s individual approach to engaging the profession of architecture. Systems: A system comprises multiple parts that, when combined into a cohesive whole, achieve a task in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Participation: Often situated in public space, projects focusing on participation allow both its author and audience to contribute equally in shaping the work’s outcome. Geometry: —the proportions, shape, and scale of an object, along with the reasons why an object has a particular shape—is perhaps the most identifiable characteristic of many architectural installations. Process: prioritizes the methods of developing and realizing an idea, where the means used are valued just as much as their final outcome. Material: The characteristics and behaviors of materials are common areas of interest, with projects being used to better understand how a specific material can be used in architecture.
