Info

The model suggests that Simon Dybbroe Møller’s Modular Meteorite Housing Units (2009) will lie in the landscape like randomly fallen meteorites. The structure is reminiscent of a piece of pyrite honed by Le Corbusier, a “modulor” with twenty-first century dimensions with cubes like thrown dice interlinked crosswise and across the diagonals. 1950s drop sculpture is transformed into habitats to fit every terrain with 360-degree adaptability and windows facing the valley.

About the artist

Born in 1976 in Aarhus, lives and works in Berlin

The Danish artist examines the historical and structural conditions of urbanity and lifestyles. Dybbroe Møller often refers to the conceptual strategies of the 1920s to 1960s, reflecting their avant-garde theories, the architecture of the modern era, and the relevance of their aesthetic designs. His works present seemingly familiar forms in unexpected contexts, so that well-known objects turn out to be something else entirely. The resulting uncertainty is a central characteristic of his work.
