A look back at the September Salon of Salon Suisse 2018

2ème Salon: 13th – 15th September 2018
Reconsidering the cultural value of architecture

Stormy winds toss us onto the shores of a rst group of islands: here we encounter philosophers, a comparatist and a “promeneur” in space and time. We hear many a thing: why is architecture a worthy subject for philosophical re ections, for example, and to what extent are these relevant to the practice of architecture. A currently highly controversial
term is being deliberated: “cultural value” – what could / should that of architecture consist of today? How does architecture affect everyday life, how does it interact with people? What testimony do literary discourses give in this regard and to what extent do they represent an enrichment of architectural theory? And how is the imaginary in literature and lm re ected in the practice of architectural design?
