«En marge de l’architecture – Encounters beyond the discipline» / Collateral Event of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia

«If architecture is an island in the archipelago of artistic and scientific disciplines, then the Salon is the ship that leaves the safe haven. The embarkation is a solemn affair: words of welcome are offered, speeches delivered, clement weather and friendly winds are wished upon the voyagers. Before the departure, exotic songs emanate from the ship’s belly. Times may be difficult, one of the expedition leaders calls to the passengers, but our journey is full of hope. In the long history of architecture, moments like these have always proved most productive, because its discourse opened up to the ideas, insights and inventions of other sciences and arts. Today it is time again to broaden the horizon, hoist sails and set out to foreign shores.»

Eine Zusammenarbeit mit den Salonniers Marcel Bächtiger, Tim Kammasch, Stanislas Zimmermann und Laura Tinti.
