Large Weston Room

For this year’s Summer Exhibition, Farshid Moussavi RA invited architects to submit ‘construction coordination drawings’ to highlight the role of architecture as ‘instruction-based art’. These technical drawings provide instructions for everything involved in a building project: from heating and air conditioning to fire safety and sustainability. Standing within a building, or looking up at its façade, most of us are unaware of the conflicts that have needed to be resolved between all the different services and structures that share the space. These drawings are not just pragmatic depictions of design and engineering, but mesmerising works in their own right.
