Archetypes documents full-scale architectural mock-ups as they are found on construction sites and testing facilities around the globe. The book puts the mock-up back at the heart of the architectural work through a series of photographs taken with direct lighting, making us forget the mess of the construction site that surrounds them and almost giving them the status of architecture as such. The photographs freeze in time these temporary structures, forms composed of disparate elements that despite their ephemeral nature are indispensable. “The mock-up is, as Reto Geiser says (borrowing from Robert Smithson), “a ruin in reverse”, a fragment made from components of a building that will exist in the future.”
