Architectural Doppelgängers at the AA

Just a quick note about a talk at the AA, Monday 29 October, 6pm
Lecture Hall

Currently exhibited at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale, The Museum of Copying is the first public presentation by the Architectural Doppelgängers Research Cluster. The Museum explores the idea of the copy in architecture as an important, active and often surreal phenomenon.

Sam Jacob and Ines Weizman will discuss the projects commissioned for the museum that include: FAT’s Villa Rotunda Redux, a 5m high re-make of Palladio’s Villa Rotunda that explores the Villa as both a subject and object of architectural copying; Ines Weizman’s “Repeat Yourself”: Loos, Law and the Culture of the Copy that presents research into the significance of copyright on architecture using legal disputes around the ownership of Loos’ archive and work as a test case; The Book Of Copies, produced by San Rocco; And tell a series of stories that surround the creation of architectural doppelgängers.
