The collected fictions project explores the blurry boundaries of our memory in understanding architecture masterpieces. Photography's role in disseminating those built works is clear, in addition to its ability to synthesize them using only a few, universally accepted shots. But photography is not only a tool to aseptically catalog and document buildings; it is also the perfect media to strengthen its own virtues by a direct and sharp focus on both real values and fictional possibilities. Reality and fiction then merge and redefine what is the essence of those buildings, which have constructed the history of modern architecture.

This exhibition compiles some of the fictions produced through the elective class ARCH 3308/3608 Architecture and Photography, taught by Rubén Alcolea during the fall 2017 semester.
