Abstract or Description:

Curating Architecture was an exhibition of new commissions by AMO (Rem Koolhaas and Reinier de Graaf), Ângela Ferreira, 
Nikolaus Hirsch and Philipp Misselwitz, and 
Walid Raad, at The Showroom, London, 
20 November–14 December 2008, curated by myself and Edgar Schmitz.

The exhibition was the final outcome of a two-year AHRC award in which a group of international academic and professional experts were brought together to discuss their engagement with architectural exhibition-making, raising questions about exhibitions as promotional tools for architects, the aestheticisation of planning processes, the (then) huge investments by museums and galleries in new architecture, and the role of exhibitions in developing debate about the built environment.
