October 31, 2010

Due to great success, the West Arch exhibition will be extended for two more weeks until November 28. West Arch is taking place at the Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst in Aachen, Germany.

West Arch, Architektur einer neuen Generation – West Arch, new generations in architecture
The exhibition shows 25 flourishing architecture studios from Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany. It focus on newly constricted or modified buildings: one family homes, factory, and public buildings, but also a big wheel or a space station made from washing machines, It is about autonomous concepts, modern materials, network, cross-border and interdisciplinary co-operation, speculative architecture and the relationship between architecture and society. A pragmatic and sometimes ironical approach is typical of many projects. Economical, aesthetical, and ecological concepts go hand in hand. The relation between politics and architecture is used tactically and often temporarily.

From website:
The exhibition “West Arch – a New Generation in Architecture” shows 25 architecture studios from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany which all respond to present demands and problems in an experimental and unconventional way. The exhibition will present both spaces that have actually been realized as well as spaces in planning or considered possible. Characteristic interests, strategies and solutions are shown and emphasize aspects of production, materials, research and education, new media and technologies, sponsorship, support and competition, inspiring examples and networks. The specific and speculative nature of a new generation of architectural thinking and architectural strategies is of special interest.
