Exhibition in Ludwig Forum, Aachen

Space&matter is invited to present its work at West Arch in the Ludwig Forum in Aachen, Germany. West Arch presents a snapshot of a young experimental architect’s scene in West Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. West Arch traces networks and structures and establishes new links in a multi-faceted supporting program. West Arch discusses the conditions of production that young architects have to deal with in different local contexts and gives an insight in the way how a young European generation of architects work.

The current situation on the market as well as the ubiquity of digital means of communication influence the operation of young architecture firms. They work in teams or networks, they are not afraid of immersing in neighboring disciplines and they occupy niches beyond the classic fields of work. Their effect is trans-regional, often international and they take advantage of new forms of communication such as Skype to facilitate co-operation over long distances. Their work is characterized by co-existence of practical application and academic commitment, the boundaries between application and research are fluid. For more info click here.
