Lacaton & Vassal: Living in the City

Exhibition dates: July 27 – September 23 2023

This exhibition presents three years of teaching and research framed by inaugural Rothwell co-chairs Anne Lacaton & Jean-Philippe Vassal at the University of Sydney School of Ar­chitecture, Design, and Planning. 

Connecting Lacaton & Vassal’s architectural projects, doc­umentary films, research, and studio investigations focused on the Sirius Building and the Waterloo Housing Estate, Lacaton & Vassal: Living in the City illumi­nates a method based on close attention, transformation rather than demolition, and provision of the highest quality of living space. It foregrounds a critical priority for the Pritzker Prize-winning French architects: Urbanism begins inside each apartment, with quality housing for everyone.

Curators: Anne Lacaton & Jean-Philippe Vassal, Hannes Frykholm & Catherine Lassen

Collaborators: Matthew Asimakis, Liat Busqila, Mackenzie Nix, Caitlin Roseby
