The Fabricated Landscape spotlights the designs of some of the most innovative figures working in contemporary architecture around the world today. Presenting projects from ten international practices, the exhibition reveals how this generation of architects, all of whom were born from 1975 and onward, explore the fundamental role that architecture and design play in our lives. The exhibition celebrates the field’s growing diversity and ingenuity by presenting practices that are responsive and attentive to the communities, localities, and cultures in which they are situated.

Visitors are transported around the world with representations of cutting-edge spaces from Japan and Scandinavia to Zimbabwe and Latin America. From single houses to large-scale infrastructure and public spaces, each practice aims to create lasting, sustainable solutions through traditional techniques and digital technologies.

On view in Heinz Architectural Center, one of the foremost institutes for the study of architecture in the United States, The Fabricated Landscape features Anna Heringer, Anne Holtrop, Assemble, Frida Escobedo, Go Hasegawa, LCLA Office, MAIO, OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, SO-IL, and UMWELT. Many of the practices will be presenting new work for the first time in the United States.

A publication in three parts is forthcoming in fall 2021, distributed by Carnegie Museum of Art and Inventory Press. The first issue, Domestic, features contributions from: Emilio Ambasz, Go Hasegawa, Luisa Lambri, MAIO, and Raymund Ryan. The Fabricated Landscape is organized by Raymund Ryan, Curator-at-Large, Heinz Architectural Center, and designed by IN-FO.CO in Los Angeles.
