Arch+ 51: Release Architecture Kerez/oehy

Publisher Arch+ Verlag

Idea Code 16442

This issue was conceived in close collaboration with Sandra Oehy, curator of the Swiss Pavilion at the 15th Architecture Biennale in Venice, and Christian Kerez, the architect of that pavilion’s Incidental Space. Kerez emphasises the non-referential, the non-predetermined, and the alienation inherent to his project as a means of expanding upon what architecture can be today. It embodies a new reciprocal relationship between material and the data cloud, one in which the difference between depiction and reality ceases to exist—where a speculative space can be released by architecture’s autonomy. With contributions by Philip Ursprung, Hito Steyerl, Mario Carpo, and more.
