Rebirth of the Bath House

5 june - 17 august 2014

Opening on Wednesday June 4th at 6:30 pm 

An Hors-Les-Murs project of La Salle de bains in Lyon

Ben Schumacher was born in 1985 in Kitchener (Canada) where he studied architecture at Waterloo University. After working for several architectural agencies, he studied Fine Arts in New York (where he has since been living and working). From his brief experience as an architect he has retained a great interest in diagrams, notes and drawings, as well as for maquettes, samples of materials and the many different communications media, which are more or less developed in terms of graphics, and techniques of printing and reproduction.

For his first solo exhibition in France, Ben Schumacher will pursue his collaborative work with architects. In the frame of this exhibition in Lyon he has been working in New York for the period of one month applying to an open call architecture competition with a young architect (so this time not with a big firm).
