«Silent architecture» is gaining ground as well as taking form. It possesses the ability to position the observer within the density of space and of time.

With a certain sense of fluidity and of fully occupying both space and emptiness, the architect becomes, to an extent, a guardian of memory.
Rugged monoliths, these thick yet fragile buildings constructed with cavities evoke mass in movement, perpetually generating tension between the volumes.
Stéphane Fernandez‘s architectural workshop conceives buildings which are beyond the
bounds of form, creating an atmosphere and an inhabited emptiness, offering up multiple doors of perception.
The exhibition «Imperfection» revolves around a permanent search for the palpable,
demonstrated through models, sketches, architectural plans and descriptions.

Parallel to the exhibition, the monograph Imperfection - Atelier Stéphane Fernandez is available through Park Books.
