COMMONPLACE ISSUE 4: AFTER THE PARTY [30.08.12]
“There is a power of speculation that is not commercial: it is propositional, projective, and positive. Speculative architecture captures the promise of the near-future and attempts to convincingly construct it in the present. It redeploys the latent and the overlooked, and turns them into the nearly-new — the recognisably novel but incrementally improved.”
» What is “Commonplace”? In response to David Chiperfield’s theme for the 2012 Venice Architectural Biennale, Fulcrum produced four daily sheets exploring the decline of the Commons (as a physical territory and intellectual domain), the shared aesthetic of our digital age, the possibility of ontological affinity with non-human entities, and speculating about the post-crash future of architecture.
Presented as part of the British pavilion’s “Venice Takeaway” programme.
