About Exutoire


Exutoire is a transversal practice that looks to the intersection of architecture, art and activism to explore the power and potentials of architecture beyond architecture alone. Exutoire has an ironic, ultra-referential, queer, cute, joyous and playful approach to things, and uses this to deal with projects that range from architecture, furniture and exhibition design, to drawing and photography, to writing, publishing and printed matters. Exutoire is presently obsessed with physical models, furniture experiments, and the quest for alternative practices of architecture.

Exutoire was created in 2019 by Bùi Quý Sơn (VN) and Paul-Antoine Lucas (FR). We are currently curating an exhibition, a podcast and a publication series titled Safe Space, in the company of Armelle Breuil. This project is meant to be a conversation platform to address issues of diversity and representation in the architectural education, discourse and production in Norway. The exhibition/residency took place at ROM for kunst og arkitektur in May–June 2021 in Oslo. The podcast will be released in August, and publications in October 2021.
