Description

The international 'Space Condition' symposium hosted by Roger Riewe at Graz Technical University in the autumn of 2002 was intended to complement the 'Latent Utopias' exhibition curated by Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher last year. Almost all major contemporary architects, designers and architecture critics commented on the subject of architecture's importance to society, which was a discussion area of particular importance. This publication is a compilation of discussion minutes, images and interviews that reflects the participant's differing positions and the current status of the architectural-theoretical dialogue.

Contents

The publication includes features on current issues and questions such as:? Which requirements define public space projects and to which degree can architecture help define this development? ? What can we expect from architecture as a product between global themes and regional demands? ? Is there a lack of ideology, manifests or radical strategies in the age of "political correctness?? ? Is it imaginable for architecture to deliver concepts that include self-generated structures instead of merely evoking sets of forms, contents and spaces?? Where is the border between vision and reality, between renderings and realization?
