Line, Light, Locus unfolds an inside view of the installation by Elizabeth Hatz at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. It shows how the installation has been made using 133 pigmented prints of original drawings from Drawing Matter in Somerset, ArkDes in Stockholm, the architects' private archives and a large hand drawing by Hatz on a specially designed table-bench.
The elegant fold-out cover illustrates the room's four walls, each of which organise four concept-sets relating to the Biennale theme of Freespace: Ground–Floor, Temple–Shed, Niche–Stoa and Mind–Space. The full-sized colour plates inside show in more detail the collage of drawings on each wall, illustrating how the printing process allowed Hatz to orchestrate the size as well as position of each drawing within these exploratory fields. Hatz's accompanying essay invokes the spatial experience created by the room-drawings and the rich conversations they capture.
