various artists.

The term 'Paper Architecture' originates from the late seventies/early eighties, when architects like Rem Koolhaas, Ben van Berkel and Peter Wilson started their carreer with highly imaginary and artistic projects. Since the economic situation of the time did not offer any building commisions, they started to construct their architectural dreams in drawings and models. With their imaginary projects they showed that economic crisis is a fertile soil to discover new architectural horizons.


Will the current crisis prove the same?
