In the 19th century École des Beaux Arts in Paris students would often work on their designs in collaborative teams up to the last moment of the project, and the Charrette, now used as a byword for an architectural deadline, was at that time a real object, a wheeled wooden cart, which would carry away diagrams and section plans along physical routes. In my studio the wooden structure has many different function: it is storage unit, bench, and a support to make work in the position of the architect. In the exhibitions “Charrette”, the sculptural object takes on a physical form again, as a mobilising element among the diagrams and assemblages on the walls.
