SMAQ Exhibition / Hamburg, Germany

The Salon Blauraum in Hamburg, Germany is presenting SMAQ’s exhibition “Architectures for the Infrastructural Leisure Landscape”. The three projects presented are architectural maneuvers that develop strategies of embracement, negotiation and adaptation to activate, take advantage and authenticate the contemporary landscape. The exhibition is supported by the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.

What SMAQ calls the infrastructural leisure landscape reaches far beyond the foothills of suburbia and has long started to outline a heterogeneous topology, in which territorial limits and functional definitions have ceased to converge. Yet the engineering disciplines rely on a reduced scope of parameters and remain encapsulated in tight regulations, segregating the requirement of efficiency in infrastructure from the wider and more complex fields it interacts with such as dwelling and leisure.

The projects presented in the exhibition “Architectures for the Infrastructural Leisure Landscape” approach such tendencies of segregation with a strategy of open embracement, of negotiation and adaptation to a multitude of circuits. They set out to search for architectural maneuvers that after all may activate, take advantage and authenticate the contemporary landscape.
