The drawings in this booklet show research carried out by the architecture firm Dogma. They studied the history of different rooms. The drawings show what the rooms of important historical figures looked like, or what they could look like. Choose your own colours and patterns for the uncoloured rooms of artists, architects, writers, monks and even an alchemist.
Since 2012, Brussels-based architecture office Dogma has been conducting research into the room: one of the most basic but also most understudied elements in architecture. With ‘The Room of One’s Own’, Pier Vittorio Aureli and Martino Tattara focus on the room as a private space. In 2019 their work was on display in deSingel as part of the exhibition ‘Rooms’. The architects studied the history of the room and its changing functions, uses and meanings. By means of 48 drawings, Dogma offers a historical overview of the architecture of the room. Now that we are daily experiencing the importance of having a room of our own, the FlandersArchitecture Institute and Dogma are making a selection of drawings available online so that it can stimulate reflection and serve as a source of inspiration.Download the drawings
