In architecture, a mock-up is a full-size model of a façade or structural component that is manufactured before actual construction begins in order to test or demonstrate a design. This exhibition combines a photographic series by Canadian artist David K. Ross with contributions from architectural offices to provide a multifaceted portrait of this phenomenon, its role in the design process, and its enigmatic allure.
