Draw the Line: the Architecture of LAB presents the process of architectural design through the material of the Federation Square NGV archive together with LAB’s subsequent projects. It explains how architects think about their designs and how concepts and processes become realised as architecture. The exhibitionl consists of conceptual material, working drawings and models.

The evolution of Federation Square will form a large part of the exhibition and will be seen in the broader context of LAB’s other projects and how they have dealt with issues of civic space, spatial order and organisation, materials and complex geometry and institutional space and the city. The exhibition illuminates the way that each of LAB’s projects evolves from a set vocabulary of conceptual approaches, such as filaments, embedded voids and networked organisations. It shows how these organising principles are used to unite different architectural and programmatic elements into coherent projects.
