The MoMA will inaugurate the exhibition Cut 'n' Paste: From Architectural Assemblage to Collage City (July 10, 2013–December 01, 2013) next month. It explores the evolution of collage as both a fundamental yet overlooked technique of architectural representation, and as an extended cultural notion of layering, juxtaposition, and remix that has shaped perceptions of the urban realm over the past century.
There are some Spanish projects among the works selected: Solar Towers - Energyscapes (Sabadell, Barcelona), by the young architects AAIMM (Alejandro Ribas Mercau, Angel Cerezo Cerezo, Martin Negri Rodriguez, Isacio Garcia Roldan), and Warsaw MMA Pavilion (Warsaw, Poland), by FRPO Rodríguez & Oriol Architecture Landscape.
