At Cityscapes Studio GM8 we currently show a selection of work on paper by various artists. The term ‘paper architecture’ originates from the late seventies/early eighties, when architects like Rem Koolhaas, Peter Wilson and Ben van Berkel started their career with imaginary and artistic projects. Since  the economic situation of the time did not offer any building commissions, they started to construct their architectural dreams in drawings, painting and models. With their imaginary projects they showed that economic crisis is a fertile soil to discover new architectural horizons. Will the current crisis prove the same?
