Excavating Utopia: Exhibition opens 14/6/2012
The weird and wonderful world of DS 15 goes on show this Thursday June 14 as part of the Department of Architecture’s OPEN 2012 exhibition. See the strange story of the Genetically Modified Utopia built by bees; visit Surveillance City, where Jeremy Bentham’s panopticon explodes into the most elaborate car park ever seen, discover the strange excavations of a Mescaline-fuelled society, a monumental aqueduct for end-of-life inhabitants whose hotel becomes their monument, or France’s great new Anarchist Theme Park. The project this year has been extending DS15′s interest in geometry and the new types of master planning to new extremes, working on site at the Saline Royale at Arc et Senans. OPEN can be found at the University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, 4th Floor Studios, Marylebone Building. Temporary entrance during building works is via Cavendish Street) Entrance free.
