Architectural research has become a game of numbers, where people, places and events have become quantifiable data to be analysed and subsequently visualised. The idea that the city has become a ‘living laboratory’ for architects is what curator Sarah Hearne investigates in this new exhibition, FieldworkTaking place at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Hearne brings together a selection of progressive architecture firms and research institutes to examine what it means to collect information in architecture today. The multi-media exhibition will present contemporary methodologies of the collection of information and how it is translated from research subjects into varied outputs.

Visualisations of information that is ‘collected, organised and displayed’ to produce ‘observations, description and evidence’ will be on display from six international practitioners, including: First Office, FAKE Industries with UTS Masters of Research, Besler and Sons, Liam Young, Andrew Kovacs and Cooking Sections.
