“Barcelona Dynamics” on exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago

The exhibition “Chatter: Architecture Talks Back”  includes the work of 300.000Km/s for the new Urban Master Plan (PDU).

If you happen to be in Chicago from 11th April to 12th July don’t miss the exhibition“Chatter: Architecture Talks Back” curated by Neville Bryan and Karen Kice.


The exhibition argues that the architectural past is recombined and reconveyed with modern punctuation.Chatter is the way in which contemporary conversations are created. Chatter can be critical; it can rely on and question the history of architecture. Technology impacts the way architects communicate their ideas, and in these conversations, social media, like Instagram and Twitter, serve not only as outlets for communication but provide a framework for how architects’ work is produced and presented.

For the exhibition, Iker Gil, director of the design publication Mas Context, conceived an installation in gallery 283 to explore the multitude of ways in which architecture can be communicated and how the active qualities of chatter—from being constant to satirical—spark conversations. The projects presented in this space were produced by a range of practitioners worldwide: Ecosistema Urbano; over,under and pinkcomma; Mimi Zeiger and Neil Donnelly with the School of Visual Arts Summer Design Writing and Research Intensive; Koldo Lus Arana (Klaus); Project_ with Sarah Hirschman; 300.000km/s with Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona; Luis Urculo; and Christopher Baker.

On April 11 and May 16, this space will house two roundtable conversations called Chatter Chats.
