Aedes Galerie, Berlin 2005

"Re-coded, Studio Rocker @ Aedes"

Works of architecture students at the University of Pennsylvania were put on display. The starting point for their designs and the place of the exhibition was the Aedes East Extension Pavilion, which was designed in the mid-nineties by the Berlin firm nps tchoban voss architects to be a neutral medium, a "blank canvas".

Against this background, Studio Rocker developed an architectural position that begins neither from the emptiness of the exhibition space, nor from the empty foundations upon which architects design. The exhibition instead reveals an architecture that is founded on the inherent logic and willfulness of algorithms. The question hereby is to what extend architecture and media have always influenced one another. The consequence of this questioning is that the free play of symbols is fundamental for the material generation of form and space. Free and uninhibited by traditional habits of seeing and imagining, these symbolic orderings allow new spatial conditions to unfold.
