An inaugural exhibition at CoCA Seattle that explores the breadth and depth of architectural possibility, expanding the traditional definition of architecture in the Northwest.
The Northwest’s most exciting architecture in the summer of 2002 came in the form of 14 projects crammed into a single room. Collectively titled “Blurred” and mounted at the Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle, they comprised the first regional exhibit of pure architectural ideas in years, if not ever.
Defying most conventions of architecture exhibits: Only one of the projects is a model; the only photographs of buildings are out of focus. Instead, the architects worked more like artists, using photography, video, process art, and installations to conceptually express spatial and structural concepts through pieces created specifically for the show.
