Global Demands - A Panel Discussion Featuring Vyjayanthi Rao

Global Demands: Architecture research in a globalized world

Whether in the sphere of architecture critique or on the market of speculative real estate investment, architecture is increasingly becoming the subject of global circulation.

For contemporary architecture production this presents numerous challenges: How can we do justice to the complexities of global dynamics as well as very local peculiarities in our work?  Where do we start when the issue is alternative approaches to spatial renewal? The two architecture researchers Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer have invited fellow participants in their international projects to discuss these questions and to develop perspectives for the future.

Speakers: Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman (University of California San Diego), Rahul Mehrotra (Harvard GSD), Vyjayanthi Rao (Terreform, New York), Irit Rogoff (Goldsmiths, London), and AbdouMaliq Simone (Max Planck Institute, Göttingen).

Moderated by: Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer (Vienna University of Technology).

Architecture lives as both object and aggregation: buildings and cities. If the pursuit of an environment that is sustainable, equitable, beautiful, and rich with difference is common at every scale, the valence of these values varies by situation. Metrophysics foregrounds projects rooted in the urban, including buildings and sites designed with both practical and polemical intent. The work is from a team that operates as both a “traditional” architectural studio responding to clients, and as a research practice that formulates its own agenda of investigation and intervention. Discoveries are passed back and forth and what Terreform has learned over the years from New York City (Steady) State—an elaborate speculation meant to determine just how autonomous our city can become—informs “official” projects Sorkin Studio has undertaken in Wuhan, Xi’an, or Istanbul and vice versa. All, however, test the limits of physical design to serve and enlarge broader human and planetary needs and desires and to represent ideas about happiness.
