In September 1519 the first stone was laid of what would become, under the leadership of François I, the most amazing construction of the Renaissance: the castle of Chambord. 500 years later, the national estate of Chambord intends to celebrate this anniversary by offering to the public an exhibition both retrospective and prospective, tying yesterday and tomorrow under the auspices of Utopia.

ORDER[S] IN ARCHITECTURE, THE COSMIC PLAY OF CONSTITUTIONS AND FOUNDATIONS

SEMINAR ARCHITECTURE THEORY, Summer Semester 2018

The image that comes to our mind today when faced with the idea of cosmos is indeed one related to the outer space, of planets, stars and galaxies – what we might also call by the name of « universe ». Yet, the cosmos has much rather “earthly” roots, as the etymology of the word binds it with the concepts of order and ornament: it is not by chance that we often refer to the latter as something “cosmetic”. These two terms, opposed to the idea of chaos and of the chaotic, can be seen as closely interwoven with architecture, as a practice that at the same time orders and adornates the space. Tracing a line in the earth (nemein), cutting an enclosure (temenos) out of an undefined space and materializing it through a set of codified signs (the orders): these are the fundamental operations of erecting one of the epitomes of all architecture, the temple. Rising order out of chaos is an act shared both by the human and the divine, to such an extent that, in the creational moment of the cosmogony, God himself is often referred to as « architect » of the universe.

Im Rahmen des Forschungsprojektes ‘set.tableau’ wird in der Übung zur Theorie des Films ‘My Precious Montage’ im Wintersemester 2017 nach einer Neuinterpretation von Platons wichtigem Dialog gesucht, welcher dem Bankett im akademischen Diskurs seinen Namen gab: Das Gastmal / Symposium. Dazu dient ein überquellendes Bankett von Quellmaterial: Bild, Text und Ton aus ‘Histoire(s) du cinéma’, ausgewählten Reden sowie Platons Symposion und Michel Serres ‘Der Parasit’.

EXERCISE / THEORY OF FILM, Winter semester 2017

In the course of the Exercise / Theory of Film ‘My Precious Montage’ during winter semester 2017, according to the research project ‘set.tableau’, we are looking for a reinterpretation of Platons most important dialogue which gave the banquet in the academic discourse its name: the feast / symposium. An overflowing banquet of source material serves us to this purpose: image, text and sound out of ‘Histoire(s) du cinéma’, selected speeches as well as Platon’ symposion and Michel Serres’ ‘The Parasite’. ....

REM KOOLHAAS’ THEOREMS AND MICHEL FOUCAULT’S METHOD: BIGNESS, JUNK SPACE, GENERIC CITY, AND THE LABYRINTHINE PATHS ACROSS THE ORDER(S) OF THINGS

SEMINAR ARCHITECTURE THEORY, Winter Semester 2017

In this Seminar we want to engage with Rem Koolhaas' somewhat hermetic concepts of Bigness, Junk Space, Generic City. We want to engage with them speculatively, by taking them as "Theorems". Yet while we are used to think that a theorem finds its place within an axiomatic-deductive theory, this is dierent with Koolhaas use of them: here we have postulated theorems, but they appear to yet lack a proper theory that would accommodate them. We have theorems that present themselves on a stage of rhetorical cunning.

DIE GEFÄHRLICHKEIT DER GROSSEN EBENE ODER WIE ARTIKULIERT MAN EINE HALTUNG IN DER ARCHITEKTUR

....

WAHLSEMINAR ARCHITEKTURTHEORIE, Sommersemester 2017

In diesem Seminar nehmen wir einen literarischen Text als Ausgangspunkt und als Material: Ror Wolf, Die Gefährlichkeit der großen Ebene (Suhrkamp, 1976). Anhand dieses Textes machen wir Sprachübungen darin, was es heißt, Theoretiker zu sein und eine Haltung einzunehmen. Es geht darum, sich in etwas zu üben, und sich dabei ein "Wissen" anzueignen, welches in erster Linie ein Können ist. Damit meinen wir ein Wissen, das sich nicht über einen Gegenstand definiert, sondern über Fertigkeiten, die in einem Gegenstand zusammenfliessen - und die jeweils mehr oder weniger gut "gekonnt" sind.

..

SEMINAR ARCHITECTURE THEORY, Summer Semester 2017

In this seminar we chose a literary text as material to work with: Ror Wolf, The Dangers of the Great Flat Plane (in German only: Die Gefahr der grossen Ebene, 1976). We will exercise ourselves in articulating what it means to take a theoretical stance. Our interest is to explore what it means to acquire a kind of knowledge which is, first of all, an active ability. We mean by this a kind of knowledge that does not define itself through an "object", which one knows passively, but through actively knowing how to master whatever factors-in the articulation of an "object". ....

GROSSES ENTWERFEN, SUMMER SEMESTER 2017

The question of history is no longer. It demands no speculation as it is now perfectly reproducible and accessible in real-time. Words that used to die are kept indefinitely. ‘No Ghost’ operates by selecting sources from a never-dying world of ideas to crystallize languages of "made realms". We momentarily interrupt this streaming present by introducing ideas as differentiations/reorganizations.

Since to bring a project into existence does not require it to have presence, "No Ghost" strives for realm-making that is critical of the emergence of projects burdened by the false weight to produce contemporary reflections, and as such are abjectly haunted by history, the same is for the future. ‘No Ghost’ identifies natures of today.
