As a part of the second Art and Architecture Triennial in Bruges, Marc Fornes / THEVERYMANY’s prototype pavilion entitled nonLin/Lin has been taken out of storage and placed on public display for the first time. First commissioned and displayed in 2011 by the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France, the exhibition will explore the rise of computational form-making. The work will spend the summer installed in the nave of the Grootseminarie, a 17th century Cistercian Abbey hosting an exhibition curated by Abdelkader Damani entitled Liquid Architectures. Fitting this year’s overarching Triennial theme of Liquid City, the designers explain that the “lively, fluid-like forms” of the pavilion “upend the notion of architecture as rigidly determined and immutable.” The exhibition is described as a demonstration of how digital design and manufacturing tools have created new approaches to architecture since their development in the 1990s.
