Metamaquettes: Metamaquettes: Between the Lab and the Site exhibition photoBetween the Lab and the Site exhibition presents a body of works that explore subjective perceptions of space and user engagement. Metamaquettes are installations, models, and mock-ups that question their own nature yet create playful spaces in which to explore cognition/perception, scale, light and (im)materiality.

Metamaquettes invite us to investigate subjectivity, neglected notions about sensory experiences, communal habits, and the ordinary and vernacular elements of culture. Being a composite word that derives from the Greek μετά/meta, and the French maquette, Metamaquette literally translates as after/post/among/beyond models.

Swinging between the real and its representation, Metamaquettes occupy the liminal space of laboratory-cum-site, becoming simultaneously both experiments and experiences.

The McCormick Gallery exhibits a variety of design work that speaks to wider themes of sustainability, historic preservation and new technologies, and to BAC values of social responsibility, accessibility and diversity. Prominently located on the corner of Newbury and Hereford streets, in the BAC's main building, the gallery engages thousands of shoppers, students, and tourists that pass by its windows and the bustling college within. All come together in this space for public opening receptions and exhibition related lectures.
