Temporary Architecture - July 28, 2012
In the field of architecture, durability and permanence are widely considered stamps of quality. Government programs around the world are aiming to increase the lifespan of buildings. But is “long lasting” the most important quality for buildings? What could we gain by seeing architecture as temporary, mobile, flexible and ephemeral?
These were a few of the questions we asked in a panel that brought together various experts including Teddy Cruz, Estudio Teddy Cruz; Robert Kronenberg, Roscoe Chair of Architecture, University of Liverpool, School of Architecture; Jürgen Mayer H.; Lena Kleinheinz, Magma Architecture; and Peter Fattinger, Design-Build.
