RÄMISTRASSE 22, 8002 ZURICH
The architects Hannes Oswald & Sebastian Stich (Stich&Oswald), the curator Angelo Romano (Counter Space) are working together to stretch the idea of a „Counter Space“ (anti-space, non-space, space with contrary direction) into time and space: to give it a temporary three dimensional existence. This project is one step within this practical researching process.
The new location is a hypothesis, a working model, a walk-in monument and a materialised utopia. It is formed from the question: What could be (a) space in the 21st century? What lies in between the wastelands, gaps, voids of a city and an architect’s plan that always aims for eternity? What would be an eternal interim use?
