Reframe, Rearrange, Repeat

Zurich, Switzerland

Autumn 2022

Students in studio Adam Caruso at ETH Zurich will spend their Autumn semester working on a group of structures around Helvetiaplatz in Zurich. Through model-making and drawing students will engage with not only the adaptive reuse of existing buildings, but also how we can reframe the cultural value of them.

To work towards this idea of a substantial and culturally engaged architecture, students will be invited to engage with artists who developed their work in ways that challenged formal, social and institutional expectations. These will include Édouard Manet, Auguste Rodin, Rachel Whiteread and Louise Lawler.

Emilie Appercé, Tibor Bielicky, Adam Caruso, Claudio Schneider and Barbara Thüler will teach on the course.

Peter St John's London Met Unit will investigate the theme of Second Life. The term comes from the artist and social activist Theaster Gates, who states that almost everything can be reused. This is evident in his work which has involved collating discarded objects and materials, as well as salvaging and refurbishing whole buildings.

Students will look at the question of how to renew buildings; how construction can be less energy-demanding and creating systems where buildings are indivisible components in a regenerating ecological system.
