Exhibition - The Making of Incidental Space

The Making of Incidental Space

Christian Kerez in collaboration with Benjamin Dillenburger – Assistant Professor for Digital Building Technologies, Joseph Schwartz – Chair of Structural Design, Karin Sander – Chair of Architecture and Art, Ludger Hovestadt – Chair of Computer-Aided Architectural Design, Christian Kerez – Chair of Architecture and Design and Alessandro Tellini – Raplap D-Arch ETHZ

The exhibition complements the presentation of the Swiss contribution to the 15th Architecture Biennale in Venice (28 May to 27 November 2016), «Incidental Space» – a project by the architect Christian Kerez together with the curator Sandra Oehy.

«The Making of Incidental Space» positively reflects the potential of architectural production in the form of a highly technological interdisciplinary practice of architecture that goes above and beyond the building. The exhibition affords a deeper insight into the interdisciplinary network of collaborators at the Department of Architecture, the expertise, the joint research and into the experiments that enabled «Incidental Space» as a project in the first place, and which constitute it as such. It is a testimony to a collective search for an imperative in the fundamental reflections on the eventualities of building and thinking architectural spaces today.

With the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
