SMAQ Exhibition / German Center for Architecture DAZ / Berlin

GLASHAUS_10, a series by the German Center for Architecture DAZ in Berlin, is presenting SMAQ and their work in a solo exhibition with the title Environment – Umwelten.


The exhibition Environments – Umwelten assembles in an abstract landscape the sites and contexts of four different designs. These, from the small scale BAD (bath) in Stuttgart to the Xeritown masterplan in Dubai, all engage with the relationship between environmental condition and urban usages. Here environmental conditions are intended as the various dynamics involved in the projects, ranging from the climatic factors, such as rain, sun, wind and seasonal changes, to the water infrastructures, traffic flows and usage patterns. The four projects presented propose diverse solutions on how these dynamics can become integral parts of everyday life and on how they can be inscribed morphologically into the context’s ecosystems. With this approach the projects themselves become unique environments that enable new and multiple usages.
