Two lectures with Judith Hopf and Philippe Rahm
Judith Hopf takes the Portikus exhibition Turen (2007 in collaboration with Henrik Olesen) as an starting point of her lecture to exemplify further and recent projects and works. Doors showed a collaborative project developed by Judith Hopf and Henrik Olesen. Doors offered passageways, entrances and exits, detours and cul-de-sacs, and repeatedly asked the viewer to come to a new decision. Philippe Rahm's lecture at the Stadelschule investigates the concept of architecture as a physiological environment. Dealing with physiological and often invisible aspects of space the Paris-based architect raises the possibility that climate can replace the typology, function and form of what we use and define as architecture.
