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.

Tsuyoshi Tane: Archaeology of the Future

What role can architecture play in mediating between the past and the future? This is a question that the architect Tsuyoshi Tane (b. Tokyo, 1979) has consistently engaged with throughout his international body of work. Each project by the Paris-based practice Atelier Tsuyoshi Tane Architects begins with an intensive research phase meant to excavate the memories embedded in a place and integrate these into the creative process: a method the architect terms the ‘Archaeology of the Future’. This exhibition sheds light on his creative process by bringing together his collections of reference images, sketches, objects and models.
