Beyond architectural programming and representation.

Gitte Juul

Public space is under pressure worldwide, and at the same time architects draw pretty images of the future focussing on the values of the consuming society. But the world is not homogenous and different futures are needed to suit different places and different people. Can we use architecture to investigate the future? - An investigation that can tell us about our behaviour, our gathering and our outlook towards the world via presenting a situation - instead of representing the future. The present can be defined as motion, - as a passage from past to future. To experience the present can be about transforming the invisible into the visible and to connect different social, political and aesthetical spheres and layers.
