[FEATURE] Climate Crisis / Architecture / Ethics
What Responsibility Does It Take to Demolish a Building and Build a New One?
by Ryul Song, Christian Schweitzer

In SPACE Special Edition: A Question for Architecture During Climate Crisis, No. 648 / November 2021

The numbers don’t add up: more people, more buildings, higher temperatures, more urbanisation, more fine dust, more land development, more soil sealing, more buildings, more resources needed, after a few decades again redevelopment, more new-towns, more buildings, more resources, more soil sealing, more waste…. We are in urgent need of a new approach to architecture and urbanism.

Evolving Manifesto
Curators Collective at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021
Web Exhibition / August 27 – November 21, 2021

The Curators Collective Manifesto Group is interested in framing a collectively considered response to the complex problems that are challenging us. In the context of multiple crises upending life as we know it, it has become clear that questions and diversity, rather than answers and universalizing declarations, more truthfully reflect the uncertain times we are in. The questions collected by the curators have become the material that can be used, added to, curated, or constructed to generate other manifestos.

With contributions by Wael Al Awar, Felipe Ferrer, Orisell Medina-Lagrange, Madeeha Merchant, Annie Pedret, Christian Schweitzer, Roberta Semeraro, Ryul Song, and others.

Future School Space Design
by SUPA Schweitzer Song

at Future School : The Korean Pavilion at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale 2021
Exhibition / Giardini, Venice, May 22 – November 21, 2021
Curated by Haewon Shin

The visualization of the fundamental mechanisms of a social architecture, and therefore the constitution of architecture itself: relationship, process, mutual influence, interaction, social enabling. Addressing basic needs and functionality, good living and working environment, adaptable to any given space, adaptable to any scenario of use, plasticity: the user can influence the space, the space influences its use, enabling of continuous change. Design without design, the design as never finished, no definite result, nothing is fixed, nothing is un-fixed. The process of un-designing the Korean pavilion.

[SPACE REVIEW] An Architecture Museum is not an Architecture Museum
A Plea for a Public Forum on the Korean Museum of Urbanism and Architecture
by Ryul Song, Christian Schweitzer

In SPACE No. 639 / February 2021

The urgent necessity of a Korean Museum of Urbanism and Architecture is indisputable. Architecture deserves potent representation within society in order to communicate, educate, and represent itself. However, an architecture museum disconnected from the people that make architecture possible is fundamentally flawed.

SUPA Architects : Naked Plans
by Ryul Song and Christian Schweitzer

in DRAWING MATTER / June 2020

The drawings in the Naked Plans series try to counter the flattening of subjectivity. By changing the syntax of our execution drawings while retaining the alphabet, words, and grammar in place, we make these hundreds of processes and thoughts readable.

“Haha! What Does This Represent?”‐“What Do YOU Represent?”
Deciphering the Work of AOA Architects
by Ryul Song, Christian Schweitzer

In SPACE No. 625 / December 2019

Suh Jaewon and Lee Euihaing don’t make it easy for us. Every step along the way towards rationalising what they are doing, they set traps and diversions in our path. The biggest trap, right up front, is the obvious question their work conjures: ‘Why do they in 2019 still design such postmodern looking buildings?’ And we have to realise that we can only ask such a question if we ourselves are deeply immersed in the postmodernist paradigm.
