Jean-Christophe Quinton

The otherness of the rooms and the promise of the forms

      From 4 July to 21 September 2024, the luca will be hosting a solo exhibition by French architect Jean-Christophe Quinton entitled “The otherness of the rooms and the promise of the forms”.
         —     Exhibition



Each plan is the fruit of a strategy that seeks to create high-quality relationships between the different parts that make it up. The project is born of this rapprochement between the component, seen as an irreducible primary entity, and the plan, conceived with the desire to guarantee the quality of their association.

This exhibition is an opportunity to share twenty years of architectural practice through a project culture driven by the notion of the piece. With drawing as a resource for seeing, designing and showing, models of all scales for a sensitive immersion and the book for a different temporality, the visitor is invited to explore the multiplicity of emotions aroused by the architectural experience and to share the pleasure of looking at the world of the project through that of the rooms.

This exhibition is organised by the luca – Luxembourg centre for architecture, with the support of Institut français du Luxembourg and the Association Victor Hugo.
