Alternative Histories
Acknowledging that architecture is a corpus of inherited ideas, Alternative Histories began with a question: could a contemporary architect, with their own references, make a model that would respond to a drawing from the past? 

This exhibition collects the 85 models produced by the same number of practices alongside the architectural drawings that prompted them, all of which are held in the UK-based archive of Drawing Matter. Taken as a whole, the responses challenge the facile understanding of concepts of reference, history or influence as drivers of contemporary architectural thinking. From methods to materials, the project opens up not only new ways of looking at the past, but also a series of conversations about how architects today shape their present.

Architecture and Landscape book fair 
First edition of the Architecture and Landscape Book Fair. ALBF is a fair organised by CIVA that aims to curate a selection of independent, international publications on architecture, landscape and town planning. The event proposes the discovery of a sophisticated selection of magazines, books and publishers that seek to explore the architectural practice with alternative mediums and encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue. On the side: a programme of meetups with publishers, book launches, debates and performances. In organising ALBF, CIVA is partnering with Wiels, organising their already established art book fair on the very same weekend.
