SCI-Arc Director Eric Owen Moss discusses the Audience of Objects exhibition currently on view at SCI-Arc with exhibitors: Herwig Baumgartner and Scott Uriu, B+U; Hernan Diaz Alonso, Xefirotarch; Craig Hodgetts and Hsinming Fung, Hodgetts + Fung; Elena Manferdini, Atelier Manferdini; Alexis Rochas, I/O; and Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich, PATTERNS.
The exhibition in the SCI-Arc Library Gallery includes six projects previously "seated" in the Austrian Pavilion at the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennal, curated by Moss. The curatorial objective for the Pavilion was to use an imaginative design means to communicate the most imaginative prospects for contemporary Austrian architecture and urban design around the world, as well as to represent Austria as both a unique repository of architectural talent, and an attentive welcomer of a new spirit of foreign architectural invention. Design works of international architects who have taught in Austria were displayed in the "Audience of Objects" exhibition inside the 2010 Austrian Pavilion.
