A Cast of Things
November 3, 2017 - January 8, 2018
A Cast of Things by the Los Angeles Design Group (The LADG), is a series of models and drawings that investigate the agglomerations of decorative stucco at an existing rococo church in Osterhofen, Germany. Through various models and drawings of the church’s adornments, the LADG attempts to reveal the architectural possibilities beneath the surface, expanding the surface decoration into proposals for occupiable space. At bulthaup Chicago, the LADG presents three models, built like totems from 3D prints and stock materials from building supply catalogs (acrylic tubes, nylon blocks, brass fittings, wood blocks), and four drawings printed on aluminum panels. A large-scale model investigating the same rococo church is concurrently on view at the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
The exhibition is presented jointly by bulthaup Chicago and THIS X THAT.
