Office Equipment & Operating Systems

Office Equipment and Operating Systems brings together a series of projects produced and exhibited at 2426. The work shifts the focus from architecture projects as such toward a conceptual framing of how Office Equipment and Operating Systems support the descriptive services of architectural production. Scanners, plotters, desks, measuring devices, software subscriptions, shared drives, modified appliances, and purpose-built tools sit alongside each other. The customization of equipment may no longer distinguish the qualities of work. Yet like the books in an architect’s library, equipment establishes a set of references. Organized by Reimaging, installations feature work by Theo Triantafyllidis, d.esk, Reimaging, and Roundhouse Collective.
