Architects today don’t build buildings, they make drawings and models. Similarly, a number of contemporary artists make works resembling architectural models, both in terms of scale and concept, while other artists working with site-specific installation make literal models of projects subsequently built. This exhibition will explore the craft of the architectural model through three themes: built, unbuilt, unbuildable, from the book of the same title by Robert Harbison.
 
Bruce Lindsey and Buzz Spector have selected the best works in all craft media from emerging and established artists and architects. Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design invited architects and artists nationwide with interest in showing their models, Marquette, sculptures, and drawings in the context of craft. 

About the Jurors
Buzz Spector's art makes frequent use of the book, both as subject and object, exploring relationships between public history, individual memory, and perception. He has exhibited his artwork internationally and has also published numerous essays about art, design, and visual culture. He is professor of art in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University. In 2013 he received the Distinguished Teaching of Art Award from the College Art Association.
 
Bruce Lindsey, the E. Desmond Lee Professor for Community Collaboration, is dean of the College of Architecture and the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Lindsey has made significant contributions to beginning design, sustainable design, and community design education. Design Intelligence named him one of the Most Admired Educators in 2009 and 2010 and in 2014 he was awarded the American Collegiate Schools of Architecture Distinguished Professor Award.
