In 2017, designer Matteo Fogale held a collaborative workshop as part of a residency at the Vilamajó House Museum in Montevideo, Uruguay.

September 28, 2018

For this show, three independent positions have been selected: “99¢ Space” by agps in Santa Ynez (USA), “Cité du Grand Parc” by Lacaton & Vassal, Frédéric Druot and Christophe Hutin in Bordeaux (France) and the front structure for “Halle 118″ by Baubüro in situ in Winterthur (Switzerland).

Today, the half-life of buildings is decreasing rapidly. When their function changes, they are often simply replaced. However, criticism of this spatial throwaway culture is growing. An ever-increasing number of architects are once again investigating structures’ potential for transformation and, in their reinterpretation, discovering scope for experimentation. To address this topic, the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is presenting the exhibition “Transform” from the 29th of September to the 4th of November 2018.  (more…)

The contents of the exhibition featured the resources that the architect uses during his creative work, a very complex process that begins with the intellectual construction of the first ideas, which are conceived and matured in the brain, until its realization and real construction later, using different tools. The intellectual construction is very complex and in it many variables determined by knowledge and sensitivity intervene, in an almost oceanic dimension by extension and depth. The exhibition includes a selection of works and architecture projects carried out between 1977 and 2017.

“Renzo Piano. The Art of Making Buildings” at the Royal Academy of Arts

September 25, 2018

This illuminating exhibition follows Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making. Focusing on 16 key buildings, it explores how the Renzo Piano Building Workshop designs buildings “piece by piece”, making deft use of form, material and engineering to achieve a precise and yet poetic elegance.

From The Shard in London to the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the buildings of Renzo Piano have enriched cities across the globe. We reveal the vision and invention behind his pioneering work, showing how architecture can touch the human spirit. United by a characteristic sense of lightness, and an interplay between tradition and invention, function and context, Piano’s buildings soar in the public imagination as they do in our skylines. Counting the New York Times Building and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre in Nouméa among his creations, he has cemented his place as one of the greatest architects of our times. (more…)

Manifesta 12 Palermo explores coexistence in a world moved by invisible networks, transnational private interests, algorithmic intelligence, environmental crisis and ever-increasing inequalities. It looks at this world through the unique lens of Palermo – a city at the crossroads of three continents in the heart of the Mediterranean. Closely collaborating with Palermitan partners, Manifesta 12 co-inhabits Palermo, as an ideal place to investigate the challenges of our time, and to experiment with traces of possible futures.

“Dario Passi. Forma Urbis” at MAXXI Rome

An homage to the recently deceased architect and artist, made through the presentation of architectural drawings in which the unique use of the medium of painting is the instrument through which constructed reality is investigated and revealed.

Some of the emblematic works that sanctified Dario Passi’s abandonment of architecture in favour of painting will be shown. At the entrance to the Architecture Archives Centre are two large oil canvas paintings, recently acquired, that represent a kind of cultural legacy of Dario Passi, whose activity over time passed from architectural practice, always carried out through high quality graphic representations, to tout-court artistic creation.

The main subjects of my incursions are places that have lost their original function or had it temporarily suspended – places where there’s a strong feeling they’re being ‘reclaimed’ by society. With a head-on approach I try to show the subject as it is, as an important document that talks about the past and present whilst submerged in an undefined time. It’s no longer about a ‘moment’, but a temporary space able to capture the unsettling, sublime dimension as a result of long, nighttime exposures that reveal colours and shapes invisible to the human eye – Primož Bizjak (more…)

“agps transformations” exhibition at Galerie Jaroslava Fragnera Prague

September 17, 2018

The exhibition focuses on the relationship of different time-horizons of spatial transformation: the urban design framework with a long-term perspective, the construction of buildings addressing intermediate timeframes, and the immediate events of everyday life.

The exhibition “agps transformations” explores the notion of time in urban design processes using a number of projects of the Zurich and Los Angeles studios of agps architecture. Considering that long-term processes face the challenge of the unknown, the exhibition illustrates the significance of open and adaptable spatial and architectural constellations that can transform in time – as opposed to the a priori determination of an idealized final state that can rarely, if ever, be achieved.
