In architecture, a ‘mock-up’ refers to a demonstration model that reproduces a fragment of a building in full size, using the same materials as the eventual finished product. These models help to better understand the detailing of a building before actual construction begins. But what if mock-ups are not understood as merely by-products of architecture, but as artefacts in their own right, in possession of an experimental or even poetic potential that goes beyond their purely technical function?

In summer 2015, 14 European architectural institutions from 13 different countries came together to launch the Future Architecture Platform. The goal of this association is to bring the innovations, experiments and ideas of a new generation of architects and planners up for discussion and to network these internationally.
