Valerio Olgiati asked the most unique architects living today each to present up to ten images to explain the autobiographical roots of their oeuvre. The images are explanations, metaphors, memories and intentions: 44 individual “musées imaginaires”.
The images show the roots of architecture and expectations concerning projects. Conscious and unconscious. The biographies are written by the architects themselves. The images are small, legible and interpretable as icons. As individual collections, they present a personal view of an individual world, while as a whole they provide a universal view of the perceptible origin of contemporary architecture.
