Opening: 28/09/2018, 7 PM
With speeches by Andreas Ruby (S AM), Sarah Graham (agps), Joris van Wezemael (SIA)
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 very distinct poetic potential and scope for experimentation.
From a diverse range of very different projects, three independent positions were selected. What they all have in common is that the investigative process is not just the initiator, but an essential component, of the transformation.
