THU, 16th MAY 2013, 6 PM: EXHIBITION TOUR AT S AM SWISS ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM
DURATION: SA, 4th MAY 2013 - SU, 26th MAY 2013
‹Spatial Positions› is the name of the exhibition series beginning at the Swiss Architecture Museum in may. On display will be the work of contemporary architects and artists as well as interpretations of historic architectural positions from a contemporary point of view. The projects and installations reach the boundaries of the architectural discipline. It is not the intention to define a groundbreaking direction or style, but rather to define a subjective investigation far from the trend Towards a global cultural uniformity.
What are the key functions of architecture? Is it still, or once again, socially relevant? How does the role of the architect change in a strongly visually perceived world? To which point can temporary structures still be regarded as architecture? The aim of this exhibition series, which will be continued in the following years, is to further foster the debate on the extended definition of architecture.
A talK held during the runtime of the exhibition is integral part of each presentation.
