Architecture conditions space – Space is changing constantly. Can architecture determine the pace or is it doomed to react? The obvious prevalence of the everyday seems to displace the unique, although both are mutually dependent. What synergies can we expect from global issues and local everydayness. Is signature architecture a trail-blazer or the culmination of architectural conditioning of public space? Is it conceivable that signature architecture not only includes the determined but also provides space for the non determined?
Michael Speaks (USA), Bart Lootsma (NL), Aaron Betsky (NL), Saskia Sassen (USA), Neil Leach (GB) and Xavier Costa (E) along with the architects invited to the “Latent Utopias” exhibition will discuss current trends in architecture, attempting to provide an outlook as to the role that architects will have to assume in future in order to contribute to a sustainable architectural conditioning of space.
