Our participation at the Seoul Biennale of Architecture & Urbanism is still on show until November 10. With an aluminum sand cast from our studio, film and photography by Armin Linke and Giulia Bruno and co-curated with @nouralsayehPlaces of Production, AluminumThe first aluminum smelter in the Gulf region was inaugurated in 1968 in Bahrain and is today the fourth largest single-site smelter in the world, continuing a history of metal trade that finds its roots in the third millennium BC. The presence of the smelter developed a local economy of aluminum- both formal and informal. Alongside, large locally based international companies producing typical by-products of aluminum, smaller workshops have developed with a focus on a smaller-scale production of aluminum. Today, aluminum stands as one of the strongest expressions of the contemporary evolution of the city, both in its application on the facades of new buildings, and in the re-cladding of older buildings, becoming synonymous with a projected image of modernity. Through an investigation of the gestures in the production processes of aluminum, the installation, using film, photography and a sand-casted aluminum prototype, is an attempt to understand the politics and production cycle of the material and to extract a different potential of its use.photos by Gang Seok Lee

The cast will be shown together with film and photography by Armin Linke and Giulia Bruno, and investigates Bahrain through the focus of one material: aluminium and it’s places of production from the large aluminium smelter, to local workshops and the build environment. The exhibition is made together with @nouralsayeh The cast is made by @bronsgieterij_kemner and produced for our project Green Corner Building that will open mid 2020 in Bahrain.

New program for combined design studio and seminar week @ethzurich HS19 is out. Here is an introduction:“I think American landscape art is one thing, but my work doesn’t have anything to do with that, it has to do with material. When I bought property in Nevada, I bought it because I had done studies and found sands and gravels that could make concrete, and clay soils that could be used for soil cements, and running water. These were all raw materials. [...] If you bought an acre of land in that part of the world you were buying all the material you could use in a lifetime.” — Michael Heizer in Sculpture in Reverse (1984)For this second semester, HS19, we will focus on SITE, as part of our six-year MATERIAL GESTURE research and design. In accordance with the approach of the studio we believe that when we take all the material aspects of a SITE in consideration: the geology, mining, different physical properties, craftsmanship, the specialized techniques and cultural understanding, we can deploy the full potential of the inherent material qualities of a SITE and our way of working it, in what we call MATERIAL GESTURE.The SITE we will study and travel to is Japan’s Southern volcanic island of Kyushu. You will explore the area from a geological, material and cultural perspective. The project that will be developed in this studio will be based on this research and exploration. You will be required to work with the materials and the volcanic processes that are present on the island, and use or transform them to design a space located there: a space that is born from the site in its material consistence and that is constructed on that site, built, in harmony or contrast, to the previous gestures that have formed the geology of the place.
