Beyond Rational, Zürich , Ausstellung 2010

«Showing objects, projects and ideas from young architects now practicing in Zurich, the exhibition hopes to highlight not only the emerging voices of design but also the thoughts and trajectories that have resulted from contemporary tools and techniques. Liberated from the prosaic constraints of typical construction projects, and the functionalism that often follows technology, the exhibited works chart relationships between technology and design, whether high- or low-tech, whether material or immaterial, to speculate beyond just the rational. Duplex Architekten present material and spatial studies to current architectural projects, the results of a sensibility that embeds architecture within a culture of making.» (Jeannette Kuo, Kuratorin)
