As cities grow and societies become increasingly heterogeneous, communal urban spaces become indispensable. In the original sense of the ‘museion’ of ancient Greece, S AM Swiss Architecture Museum is transformed into a home for public life, providing open space for visitors to experience being part of an community. The exhibition is curated by the two emerging architecture practices, namely Plan Común and Kosmos architects, who establish a space between collective experiences and architectural interventions.
The show takes place in the context of Future Architecture Platform co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and features works by Caesar Zumthor Architekten, Focketyn Del Rio Studio, Manuel Herz Architects, Rahbaran Hürzeler Architekten, Scheibler & Villard, Vécsey Schmidt Architekten.
