«The architecture of our time is emerging, and is both redefining itself as a medium and expanding its field. Many field beyond traditional building are taking over architecture, just as architecture and architects are moving into fields that were once remote. Everyone is an architect. Everything is Architecture»
In 1968, with just a thousand words and over 90 images Hans Hollein demolishes the boundaries of architecture with its famous manifesto Everything is Architecture. Borrowing the language of photography, journalism and advertisement and using artworks, objects and images of celebrities, Hollein collages anything from industrial design to astrophysics.
50 years after Hollein’s iconoclastic prophecy is fully realised. Architecture is completely dissolved into the dematerializing overflow of information.
Yet, seen from the fast and precarious contemporary condition the collages of the Viennese master open another horizon of liberation: what matters are not the objects but the space in between them, not the speed but the time between bits of information, not the data but the frame that gives meaning to experience and knowledge. What is left to design is the landscape which turns the commodities into totems of a spiritual, magic, erotic, collaborative, individual, ordinary, abstract and dirty life. Architecture is Everything.
This year CAMPO
and Black Square
join forces with Modelab
and invite a group of contributors to select an object and describe, through a photograph and a text, the world, real or imaginary, that has produced it.
The participants to the workshop will depart from these objects, their images and their stories, to develop a narrative and to construct a physical model of the landscape that frames and gives them meaning.
For a week we will gather in Rome, imagining the material translation of imaginary worlds, learning model-making techniques and exploring the city with its stratified and contradictory landscapes.
Texts, models, and images, as well as the documentation of the fieldwork and of the model-making processes, will be featured in an exhibition opening in Rome 14 September 2018 and further collected in a publication.
