This paper looks at how buildings and design work realistic ally exist in the world for many young practitioners – as a breadth of curated and consumable representations. But looking beyond the proliferation of the image (blogs, books, social media), consumer artifacts may be the most effective conduits for the dissemination and presentation of architectural work as our contemporary landscape increasingly asks for more accessible arti facts and expedient modes of procurement. This paper explores alternative modes of production, representation, and dissemination for architecture practices through the lens of a recent exhibition by the authors’ entitled “Sports the Store.” The discussion of the exhibition intends to show how the insular nature of current architectural representation can be challenged with alternative modes of communication and production through everyday consumer artifacts to reach a larger, more general audience – and more importantly, a greater appreciation.
