Fun with Patterns

2/7/2012 Uncategorized

We’re big pattern fans here at Utile (a segment of our office consists of closeted Studio Alchimia and Memphis enthusiasts).

So, we were thrilled to see Andrew Zago’s recent drawings for the MoMA Foreclosed exhibit.


I have some doubts about the overall exhibit premise and the projects, but I do appreciate the hint of heterogeneity and lack of architectural totalitarianism in Zago Architecture’s rendering style.
