A custom designed house is a spatial form/embodiment of a ‘living’ (habitual practices, ambitions and desires). Beyond the apparent styles and materials, one can trace the crossings of the occupant’s characteristics, the designer’s (spatial) interpretations, and the site’s material and environmental conditions and challenges. 010_HOUSE exhibits a selection of 10 house designs by Winnipeg-based design practices. Through drawings, photographs and models the exhibition will feature how these practices have nuanced the client/family’s specific way of living, and their often demanding needs and desires, in their house design. The exhibition is also intended to provoke a series of discussions/reflections on house designs in Winnipeg and our living conditions today.
Starting with an 4’ x 8’ rough plywood sheet, it is ripper into 16” wide lengths, then 24” inches removed from each end. This provides 72” x 16” display surfaces for mounting prints, and a 24” x 16” that is notched and inserted to the main panel for showcasing models and variable heights.
