“A gem of an installation, Super Models reads like a meta-commentary on this biennial’s obsession with the medium. The work, which was realized in conjunction with an exhibition at the Princeton School of Architecture, recreates a gallery in the O.M. Unger–designed German Architecture Museum (DAM). The biennial facsimile is based on photograph from 1984, the year DAM opened, depicting several of the museum’s holdings in a pavilion-like space. In Chicago, just as in the picture, 12 building models by famous architects including Aldo Rossi, Robert Venturi, Hans Hollein, and Frank Gehry are huddled underneath an artificial skylight, like precious works of art.”
