Form follows…

...9 optimistic practices

The exhibition “Form follows …” will allow visitors to discover the intellectual and practical universes of nine optimistic, young architectural positions/practices that develop possible answers to relevant societal questions in order to get an insight about what drives them in their designs.

Schwemmland, Guerilla Architects and Plan Común work on the production and activation of public space.

Jack Self, Super Future Group and urbz are on a search for affordable housing solutions in three different cities.

Jerome Becker, Florian Sammer & Lukas Vejnik, Lavinia Scaletti and Sara Neves & Filipe Estrela use personal experience in space to address questions of changing lifestyles in times of globalised urbanisation.

All these inspiring architects are filled with fresh optimism and the will to give form to their visions, by that they invite us to dream of possible futures. Together with the swarm of 291 ideas from the Future Architecture Platform they will open a space to experience ideas, questions and possible answers within the expanded field of architecture and urbanism in an exhibition curated and designed by Ingrid Sabatier & Stephan Schwarz – ISSSresearch&architecture.
