Forum Basel

Forum Basel. Urban spaces for communal living 
Opening: 19.05.2017, 7PM

From 20 May to 18 June, S AM abolishes its entrance fee and provides a non-commercial space to the people of Basel to work, play, read, eat, rest and more.
In reaction to the increasing commodification of urban space today, the two emerging architecture practices Kosmos Architects (Moscow/Basel) and Plan Común (Santiago de Chile) explore potential collective spaces in Basel. Surveys and projects, developed in collaboration with local architects, are complemented by interviews with actors of the built environment.
The more heterogeneous societies become, the more important it is for cities to provide open spaces where we can experience ourselves as part of a community. In the original sense of the “Museion” of Ancient Greece, S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is transformed into a home for public life.

What if

Opening: 24/11/2023, 7 PM

Lost, rejected, abandoned or altered... There is a vast number of architectural designs that continue to be talked about in Switzerland, even though they have never been built. The S AM takes a look back at them and constructs a utopian-dystopian image of what Switzerland could have been.
