The luca – Luxembourg Center for Architecture exhibits the by-products of the spatial intervention created by the participants of the ‘AA Visiting School Luxembourg 2022 – European Capital of Culture’ in the south of Luxembourg between 29th August to 11th September 2022.

During the visiting school, participants explored the role of architecture within the production of cultural events which claim to contribute to urban and social regeneration. In order to respond to this provocation and make their case, the participants focused their research on the various architectural projects of the European Capital of Culture – Esch 2022. Simultaneously discussing spatial observations through designing and participating in a circular construction workshop, they were challenged to speculate on the positions of architects within the cultural domain and the agency they may have in encouraging positive change. 

The process of designing and building the one-to-one scale structure produced along the way an unplanned series of creative experiments relying on various media. 

The exhibition at the Luxembourg Center for Architecture will show a selection of this work-in-progress material, such as images, objects, text, sounds, and other fragments, which emerged from the theoretical and practical workshops during the two weeks. It invites visitors to look for emerging ideas in the Unfinished, which are often too easily discarded as part of generic design processes favouring projected results over experimental challenges.
