4AM/VENICE // ASKING ARCHITECTURE // exhibition you can talk to

This year’s exhibition in the Czech and Slovak Pavilion at the 13. International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia will belong to the project Asking Architecture, which presents more than 18 artists and creative groups from the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic. The exhibition project of the rese arch platform will be opened on August 27, 2012. An unconventional installation relies solely on virtual and aug-mented reality and reveals itself only after the visitor makes a step towards a collateral communication with the exhibited projects and the artists themselves.

4AM Forum for Architecture and Media in the Czech and Slovak Pavilion at the 13. International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia:

KILL YOUR IDOL / ZABIJ SVÉHO FUCHSE: PSYCHOANALÝZA SOUČASNÉ BRNĚNSKÉ ARCHITEKTURY

The title of the exhibition is a paraphrase of Freud’s imperative statement “kill your father”, by which this founder of psychoanalysis illustrated the moment in the psychological development of a human being influenced by close family and social relations and ties. According to Freud, healthy personality growth and development is conditioned by the existence of a substantial father figure – an idol. This figure should be such a powerful rival that overpowering him must mean strengthening and enforcement of the son – an apprentice – with the subsequent achievement of independence of such a son.

The exhibition KILL YOUR IDOL / ZABIJ SVÉHO FUCHSE aims to apply the view and methodology of psychoanalysis on the process of architectural work of five architects from the city of Brno and their conscious inclination towards general principles and patterns. Like in psychoanalysis itself, in the exhibition the most important role is played by interviews that are structured by identical questions. Those questions uncover the specific nature of the process of artistic work of each architect, their conscious sources of inspiration, outstanding personalities of teachers, spiritual idols, relationships to history and theory of architecture, to art and literature, they touch upon one’s obsession on the actual buildings and their future and on the possibility and lack of ability to define the important architectural qualities. The images of actual architectural designs and of the realized buildings, intertwined with the interviews of the architects, indicate the manner in which the above reality is demonstrated and the extent to which the general platform is reflected within the realization of the designs.

The Exhibition KILL YOUR IDOL took place in the Gallery of Architecture/4AM/ in the city of Brno from January 17 2011 until February 24 2012. The Czech title of the exhibition refers to the personality of Bohuslav Fuchs who ranked among the most important representatives of functionalist architecture of the city of Brno and whose buildings have, similarly to functionalist forms, an unavoidable influence on the architectural works and design of architects of the city of Brno. The interviews include questions on the specific aspects of the Brno scene and environment. The architectural solution of the exhibition in 4AM was delivered by Peter Stec, a Slovak architect, who proposed an installation formed by a grid of conic sanctuaries devoted to individual ateliers, the interior of which referred to the principles of their artistic and architectural work. For the purposes of 13th Biennale of Architecture a virtual presentation of the exhibition consisting of video interviews with the architects will be presented.

COMPACT CITY/KOMPAKTNÍ MĚSTO

Within the current European context neither the needs nor the ambitions to found new cities seem to be detected. All kinds of regulatory activities and measures have meant that the existing cities are experiencing the most substantial changes in their suburban areas. Rather than an intensive use of their natural space the cities thus expand and grow rejecting everything they are unable to absorb due to legislative frameworks. The inner city, however, is not a final, complete and definite structure but an ever-changing organism for which new impulses originating within it are vital and necessary for its very existence. Compact city does not mean creation of new borders and limits, on the contrary it means being open to building new buildings and structures within an already built-up area.

Instead of posing the question:

HOW TO DESIGN A CITY?

one should ask:

HOW TO DESIGN WITHIN A CITY?

or:

HOW TO DESIGN IN ALREADY DESIGNED?

The exhibition took place from March 19 to April 24, 2011 in 4AM/Gallery of Architecture in Brno. The Compact City itself was given the form of a continuous workshop – five exhibitors from five Central European countries introduced topical installations for the duration of the event. Every participant had at their disposal the entire exhibition hall for the period of one week, concluded by a presentation and opportunity for discussion with another lecturer. Each and every installation was based on the exhibition hall being shared with other exhibitors and the additive nature and concept of exhibitions. In its own way the exhibition represented an unfinished experiment similar to the one of a city itself. This year was published also a book of the same name, a compilation of contributions of individual exhibitors and lecturers, alongside commentaries of the curators.

Participating authors:
Peter Stec, Levente Polyák, KÉK, Pavel Hnilička, Ida Čapounová, Jan Pfeiffer, Gabu Heindl, Aleksandra Wachnicka, Paweł Wachnicki, Petra Hlaváčková, Jakub Kopec, Szymon Rozwałka

FOLK ARCHITECTURE MONUMET INFO
The Folk Architecture Monument by artist Tomáš Džadoň (1981) consists of three classic log cottages placed on the roof of a classic prefabricated 13-floor housing block in one of the largest housing estates, Dargovských
hrdinov (locally dubbed the Furča), in Košice, Eastern Slovakia. The housing estate is situated on a hill, in the north-east part of the city. Its development started in 1976 and, today, its inhabitants number 30 000 people (12% of the city population), living mostly in the blocks of flats. The original three classic log cottages date from 1902 (Párnica) and 1965 (Liptovská Teplička). Their sizes are 8 × 7,5 × 8 m (Liptovská Teplička), 10 × 6,7 × 7,5 m (Párnica) and 6,5 × 5,1 × 6,5 m (Párnica). The loghouses are set on steel grids (HEA 160) and anchored to a vertical carrying wall of the housing block P1.14. Their combined weight is approximately 42 tons. The built up area is 178 m2. Installation took place from August – September 2013, and the opening ceremony was on 28th September 2013.
