    Symposium: ‹The Space We Share›

    In collaboration with the Future Architecture Platform.
    Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programm of the European Union.

    «Access for All» at the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum examines architectural and infrastructural projects in the Brazilian metropolis of São Paulo with a particular focus on how they interweave with and add new qualities to the urban fabric in which they are embedded.
    Taking the themes of this show as a starting point, this international symposium (flyer) presents case studies, visionary projects, and research initiatives by young designers from across Europe and beyond who work at the intersection of architecture and public space. Through individual presentations as well as discussion sessions, the event will examine and debate, at different scales, how more inclusive spaces can be created in the city and what role and responsibility architecture has in the provision of such spaces.

    «Access for All. São Paulo's Architectural Infrastructures» 


    An exhibition by the Architecture Museum of the TU Munich adapted and expanded by S AM together with the Institute of Architecture FHNW. 


    For decades, the Brazilian metropolis of São Paulo has seen investments in architectural infrastructures that help alleviate its lack of public space and fulfill a growing need for public spaces with cultural, recreational, and athletic functions. ‹Access for All› provides an in-depth look at these various buildings, public spaces, and infrastructures at different scales and how they create inclusive places for São Paulo’s urban society.

«S AM Calls» is a series of Instagram Live conversations with practitioners and thinkers from the world of architecture on the pressing questions driving the built environment today.

All conversations took place in English and were recorded. If you missed the previous conversations with Jacques Herzog, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Ludovica Molo, Richard Hassell, Ana Puigjaner, Theo Deutinger, Jeanne Gang, Eyal, Weizman, Rahul Mehrotra, Philippe Rahm or Asymptote Architecture, Lina Ghotmeh or Beatriz Colomina you can catch up on our InstagramFacebook, and YouTube channels.
