The exhibition VARIATIONS examines how materials have influenced Titan's practice and research. A series of interventions, in the form of prototypes and segments of their research divided into themes and projects, is each telling its own silent story, creating a dialogue between the architect and his search for inspiration. The scenography follows Titan's studies on materials - their research on production, finishing, implementation, on proportion and nuances, and light, and, moreover, the enduring or evanescent qualities of a project. 'Looking back is a moment of reflection, a moment of uncovering untold stories – stories inhabited by architecture. Each of our projects has a story, in which all elements are considered with equal importance. VARIATIONS aims to offer a glimpse into these hidden and poetic aspects of our studio’s work. Materials speak their own language, about the places they come from, the richness and complexity of their formation, even the geological foundations of Earth itself. They also inspire us to push the boundaries of the architectural practice of inventing, reinventing, reusing, and adapting, going beyond the strict divisions between disciplines and finding new connections on aesthetic, functional, and technical levels.'
The exhibition is on view from June 21 to September 8 at the Maison régionale de l’Architecturedes Pays de la Loire in Nates, France.
