Curated by Valentin Roma and coproduced by CentroCentro, La Virreina Centre de la Imatge in Barcelona and Arc en Rêve in Bordeaux, this exhibition documents the twelve years of work that estudioHerreros has devoted to the project and to the construction of the Munch Museum of Oslo.
The name of the exhibition, Lambda Files, uses the name that estudioHerreros used to protect the anonymity of its entry in the international tender that was awarded in 2009 and which, rather unusually, was used by the media until the building began to be built. Far removed from the grammars employed in architecture exhibitions, the idea of a file is manifested here through a series of materials that document the internal history of the project and that don’t usually see the light of day given that they are considered “bureaucratic papers”, avoiding the usual plans and photos in which there is no trace of the innumerable contingencies that accompany the design and commissioning processes.
