Façade mock-ups for Caruso St John's Swiss Life Arena have been photographed as part of Canadian artist David K. Ross' new publication Archetypes. 

Hosted by BALTS Projects, Caruso St John's Tibor Bielicky will be in conversation with Ross about the project, on Wednesday 23rd June 2021, 18:30 (MSEZ).

David K. Ross' photographic series, Archetypes will be exhibited at BALTS Projects in Zurich from the 29th May to the 10th July. The exhibition will continue from Zurich to Munich at the Architektur Galerie, and finally to Basel at the Swiss Architecture Museum.

Theatrically lit at night and isolated from their surroundings, the compilation of photos aims to demonstrate how pre-constructed architectural components have become a charged form of proto-architecture.

Alongside its series of photographs, the publication presents four essays framing the historical, technological, and civic significance of the architectural mock-up

Archetypes was edited by Reto Geiser. With contributions by Reto Geiser, Sky Goodden, Ted Kesik, and Peter Sealy. Photographs by David K. Ross. A publication by Standpunkte, Basel.
