Aaron Betsky, Chief Curator of the 11th International Architecture Exhibition
(Venice Biennale), invites architects worldwide to reconsider the boundaries of architecture, with the concept he entitled Out There: Architecture Beyond Building.
The project Corpora in Si(gh)te, by the Japanese-Swiss-Hungarian team doubleNegatives Architecture, regards the building a living organism, and follows the model of structures that emerge without the supervision of a designer-engineer, organised from the bottom up.
Exterior sensors continuously process and evaluate the events that occur in the outside space, and then make their own decisions about the construction of the virtual structure called Corpora, this constantly changing architecture. The live image transmitted by video cameras and the generated structure projected onto it can be seen on monitors and projection screens inside the exhibition space, Géza Maróti’s
art nouveau pavilion, where the audience can also manipulate the vision.
