Opening Hours

Model Architects: Understanding Maquettes


As part of Folly: Art After Architecture, graduates from the Cork Centre for Architectural Education, University College Cork/CIT, produced models of the iconic buildings referenced in the exhibition. The
maquettes represent such diverse architectural landmarks as Peter Zumthor’s Saint Benedict Chapel, Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Lina Bo Bardi’s Casa Bo Bardi.

These models provide an insight into the buildings that have informed and inspired the artworks throughout the exhibition. Model Architects invites the young architects who created these models to discuss the maquettes they made and the importance of model-making to the architectural process.
