Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis (aka Op’s)
In this exhibition, Storefront presented ten speculative architectural projects by Op’s, a cross-disciplinary collaboration between Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurnamaki and David Lewis. Works in the exhibition ranged from executed designs, such as the “Pull of Beauty” installation, to conceptual urban projects. Seemingly banal and usually overlooked architectural artifacts such as movie theaters, health clubs and video stores formed the centerpieces of their investigations, becoming sites for tactical architectural reconfigurations. The projects in the exhibition drew out irrational desires from the apparently rational conventions of architecture by pursuing the perversity of these conventions to nearly illogical ends.
