The Architectural Association presents A Lot With Little, an exhibition and video installation by Noemí Blager and Tapio Snellman

The Architectural Association (AA) is pleased to present A Lot With Little, a film installation by Noemí Blager and Tapio Snellman that highlights how architects can make economical use of resources to develop sensitive, sustainable architectures.

The exhibition is being shown in London for the first time, having previously been exhibited in Germany, Switzerland, China, Czechia, the US and at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

A Lot With Little showcases the work of international architects engaged in sustainable solutions for housing and education, the transformation of existing buildings, and disaster relief.

It features projects with a social dimension that have had a positive impact on the communities they serve. The contributing architects provide multiple interpretations of a shared mindset, by overcoming a lack of resources with creative ingenuity.

A multichannel film installation showcases selected projects in their existing settings, alongside insightful interviews with the architects themselves.

This immersive experience allows visitors to grasp the design challenges and experience the feeling of inhabiting these spaces, instead of merely responding to their visual appeal.

By bringing the film installation to the AA, its content is juxtaposed with the many academic agendas throughout the school that also explore sustainable practices and circular approaches to material use.

As well as our extensive programme of short Visiting School programmes that engage with local communities around the world.
