Lars Krückeberg surveys Graft’s work, moving from small to large projects, including exhibits, duty-free shops at Frankfurt, a dental clinic in Berlin, a zero-energy house for Kuala Lumpur, apartments in Berlin, a mobile Kunsthalle constructed out of shipping containers, a proposed Jewish museum of tolerance in Moscow, and a car-check station outside of Volkswagen’s Autostadt.


Graft In Pursuit of Happiness

Christoph Korner outlines the major themes of Graft’s practice, stressing being prepared to recognize inspirations, and to take advantage of serendipitous encounters. Lars Krückeberg surveys Graft’s work, moving from small to large projects, including exhibits, retail, a dental clinic in Berlin, a zero-energy house for Kuala Lumpur, apartments, cultural facilities, hotels, a green mixed-use development in Dubai, and projects in China for eco-tourism and skiing. Krückeberg also surveys some of Graft’s activities outside of architecture, including furniture design, the Make It Right project in New Orleans, a therapeutic intensive care room, and Solar Kiosk sustainable recharging stations in Ethiopia and Kenya.

Phillipe Rahm discusses atmosphere design. He calls the air within a room a soft solid and argues that it is a volume much like the air within a balloon.  He states that we are swimming inside this soft solid composed of layers of heat, humidity, and pollution and that this space is the space we should try to design.

Introduction by:

Phillipe Rahm proposes that the air within a room a soft solid and a volume much like the air within a balloon. He argues that we are swimming inside a soft solid composed of layers of heat, humidity, and pollution and that this space is the space we should try to design. He discusses his work at the Venice Biennale, his own office, and a park in Taiwan.

Phillipe Rahm discusses the different climate conditions required for different artistic practices, and the ventilation issues of spaces for large groups of people as opposed to spaces with a few people. He points out that his office does not use doors to separate zones, but employs pockets of temperature and humidity flow. He illustrates how it works.

Peter Eisenman concludes with remarks on the current state of architecture for students. He warns students against the idea that architecture solves problems; he proposes that, on the contrary, its purpose is to create problems. Similarly he dismisses any idea about architecture benefiting society economically or socially. He maintains that sustainability has nothing to do with architecture. He hopes students are devoting more time to Palladio than to Autodesk Revit. He notes that students at SCI-Arc might be more free of these misconceptions than students elsewhere, and encourages them to think through the project of architecture, in the continuity of the discipline.
