Gallery: Florian Beigel's last sketches

Florian Beigel and Philip Christou - A Dream of Innocence - exhibition view

Words and pictures from The Betts Project exhibition

The Betts Project, a gallery specialising in architecture, presented A Dream of Innocence, a solo exhibition by Florian Beigel and Philip Christou earlier this year, showing a series of new pencil line drawings made on greasy kitchen paper as well as drawings of the ‘104 Village’ unbuilt project.

As space researchers Florian Beigel and Philip Christou are deeply interested in ‘the space which lies between’. In their architecture, like in Giorgio Morandi paintings, the space in-between is formed and represented, making the positive objects stronger and more powerful. The void constitutes in this way the potential and quality of the coexistence. Crevices, gaps, intervals, emptiness are important subjects when it comes to think about Florian Beigel and Philip Christou ‘architecture as city’.
