Elizabeth Hatz Architects

Freespace - Line, light, locus

Elizabeth Hatz


Embedded in our manifesto, FREESPACE, is the wish to show various ways of seeing the world in the freespace of time and memory, building on inherited cultural layers, weaving the archaic with the contemporary. As part of this intention, we wanted to show meaningful examples of architectural drawings. Our interest lay in the continuum of drawing as a unique human thread of lines, not only from our contemporary world, but also evidence from previous times. When we thought about Elizabeth Hatz’s skills and sensitivity, we felt that her experience positioned her to choose examples of important drawings from history, so that the general public and architectural community could see drawings afresh, could enjoy their impact and could re-assess their legacy. The visceral energy of a drawing, the power of the human hand and mind to imagine, to record, to represent in a new way, are displayed by Elizabeth Hatz in a side-by-side format, forming new and unexpected relationships. Familiar and less known works are placed close to each other. New understandings, new interpretations are possible. We can be reminded of forgotten treasures. We can take time to scrutinise, to look, to see, to enjoy.
