This exhibition is an attempt to disclose and put in order Stoà’s archive, after a year of work, comprised of more than five hundred images collected during the construction of the first two issues dedicated to the role of models and drawings as tools for architectural design pedagogies. The exhibition is organized into three sections: reading, thinking and
making. Three actions that are impossible to disconnect one from another, yet irreplaceable moments that are autonomous in the unfolding of the design process. To read reality, its questions and themes. Reading is understanding. To think the project, its possibilities and then its space. Thinking is making. Making as a synthetic action, an indispensable physical act through which ideas become matter and, vice versa, matter refines ideas through its physicality. Making is, at the same time, a way of reading and thinking about reality. Crafting Stoà is therefore a first occasion to open the doors of our virtual editorial office making it physical: an action to look back at the starting point of our journey.
