The CCA presents Other Space Odysseys: Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Alessandro Poli Print E-mail
Wednesday, 31 March 2010 08:37

When: from 8 April until 6 September 2010.
Where: Canadian Centre for Architecture 1920, rue Baile Montréal, Québec H3H 2S6
What: The exhibition reveals how the exploration of space has informed the rediscovery of earth, and illustrates the importance of pursuing an architecture based on the production of ideas.

CCA_Other_Space_Odyssey
The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) presents three approaches to the ideas of an adventurous journey that started 40 years ago after the 1969 moon landing. Featuring the work of architects Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, and Alessandro Poli, Other Space Odysseys comes at a time when space exploration is the subject of renewed enthusiasm, but also of debate which questions its justification. Scientific expeditions, satellite launches, and the emergence of space tourism are pushing us to reconsider our relationship with our own planet.

For these architects, space has provided not only a rich context for experimentation, but also an extreme condition in which to test new ideas for life on earth. The exhibition, on view at the CCA from 8 April until 6 September 2010, is curated by CCA Curator of Contemporary Architecture Giovanna Borasi and CCA Director and Chief Curator Mirko Zardini, in active collaboration with the architects.

Other Space Odysseys presents the architects’ projects in two galleries each, adjacent and open to one another in order to establish relationships among their respective works. This format produces a conversation between the architects’ work, expanding to create a broader and more complex reflection on the themes of the exhibition. The idea of space exploration provoked these architects to use new and different media for disseminating their ideas: models, collages, animation, and objects supplant more traditional two-dimensional forms of representation.

Accordingly, Other Space Odysseys presents a wide array of material, both real and virtual, from the simple tools of a farmer to the digital animation of a science fiction film. The architects have worked to select the material and present concepts through the exhibition design. The graphic design for the exhibition, by the Minneapolis, Minnesota-based designer Alex DeArmond, is inspired by the long distances, intersecting geometries, and nebulous lighting inherent in space exploration.

Commenting on the exhibition, Mirko Zardini stated: “Other Space Odysseys has nothing to do with Space Architecture or architecture in outer space. It is not a celebration of high-tech architecture and imagery or extreme physical and mental conditions. Instead, this exhibition proposes a letting go of architecture understood as the production of material goods in favour of architecture as the production of ideas.” Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, and Alessandro Poli have developed unique and imaginative responses to the questions of space travel and the inhabitation of new, extraterrestrial realities. Their odysseys, real and virtual, ultimately promise a rediscovery of our own planet.

Other Space Odysseys is the third in a series of exhibitions at the CCA conceived in collaboration with contemporary architects which have developed new ways to investigate important themes through curatorial approaches that reveal the attitudes of the architects themselves. Environment: Approaches for Tomorrow (2006–07) presented two reflections: one on the disappearance of wilderness by the French landscape designer Gilles Clément, the other by the Swiss architect Philippe Rahm on the interrelationship of humans and climatic conditions. In 2008, Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo explored through architecture two different approaches to urban living with respect to private and public life through the work of architects Ryue Nishizawa in Japan and Stephen Taylor in Britain. “This series of exhibitions," explained Giovanna Borasi, "offers an opportunity to explore issues that we think are critical to contemporary debate with architects who, through their research and projects, contribute their ideas to the topic.” In addition to presenting existing projects, the architects involved have created new work specifically around the subject of the exhibition.

GREG LYNN
CCA_Other_Space_Odyssey_3Three projects by Greg Lynn are presented in the exhibition, each one making use of extreme conditions – such as virtual reality or the absence of gravity – to introduce new directions, technologies and form into the world of architectural possibility. A sense of tension is created between work which provides a virtual reality representation of the earth, and work conceived as architecture for outer space. The first gallery presents New City, an architecturally considered virtual world. Five models, digitally fabricated for the exhibition, as well as an animation, capture the project, which responds to the emergence of social media through the design of a parallel virtual reality in which all of the earth’s inhabitants reside in a single, interconnected city.

In a second gallery, Lynn’s research on outer space is presented. A series of models (also digitally fabricated for the exhibition) present the N.O.A.H. (New Outer Atmospheric Habitat) structures, a series of four planets developed for the science fiction film Divide. From afar, the planets appear as unique forms; up close, they are revealed as porous, cellular structures that contain a wide range of spaces and microclimates. Lynn’s exploration into the possibilities revealed by the extreme conditions of outer space is also represented by drawings and animation produced by his students at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, and the University of California, Los Angeles. Their projects for space colonies responded to a brief from

Lynn, who challenged his students to explore the notion of ‘ground’ in the absence of gravity. Asked about his goal for the exhibition, Lynn replied: “I want the things in the show to seem like they’re chunks of something from another place that happened to find their way into the CCA. And because New City is a virtual thing, I really feel like somehow it has to look like we reached into a virtual world, and grabbed a thing, and took it out, and it’s frozen or something. It should be like it’s arrested, and it’s not complete, it’s a fragment.... It needs to be not a window into something, but like artefacts were taken out, and the minute they were taken out they froze. So, I’m hoping it has an otherworldly quality.”

MICHAEL MALTZAN
Michael Maltzan’s proposed new building for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), a NASA laboratory in Pasadena, California, seeks to bridge the chasm between the emotional qualities of space exploration and the bureaucratic nature of the scientific research that underlies these missions. TCCA_Other_Space_Odyssey_2he scientists at the JPL (established in the 1930s) have been involved in many of the most important chapters in the history of space exploration. Maltzan’s design, still in a preliminary phase, challenges existing architectural models for campuses that house scientific research, and proposes a new type of physical environment to facilitate collaboration. Writes Maltzan, “I am interested in the radically different scale between the space the scientists inhabit in their minds and their day-to-day experience.”

This dichotomy between earthbound scientists and their work at the scale of outer space is reflected in the exhibition. In the first gallery, a video of space exploration shows the sublime and heroic qualities of the images received from outer space. The second gallery presents the day-to-day technical and bureaucratic life of the JPL through data received from the Cassini mission, which is currently exploring Saturn and its moons. Study models created at the beginning of the design phase, as well as models of the current proposal for the JPL building created for the exhibition are displayed throughout the two galleries dedicated to Maltzan’s work.

Describing his aims for the exhibition, Maltzanstates, “In the show, I would be very happy for someone to not necessarily understand the building. I imagine somehow creating an in-between that has an equivalency to what we were trying to produce in the building in terms of the experience. I think it is better if the show provokes you to ask questions as opposed to providing any. Because the building as a whole provides an answer; it’s the ending to the story. So, it’s probably good to, in that sense, not have the ending.”

ALESSANDRO POLI
The 1969 moon landing radically changed Alessandro Poli’s vision of planet earth, leading him to develop a new idea of geography. Other Space Odysseys revisits projects of his that explored drastically different proposals for connecting the earth’s environment to the new reality of outer space. In the exhibition, Poli’s current reflections on his research are presented alongside his original projects. The first gallery is dedicated to Architettura interplanetaria (Interplanetary Architecture - 1972), a film by the radical Italian architecture group Superstudio (of which Poli was a member from 1970-72) that imagined a form for architecture at an interplanetary scale, including a highway from the earth to the moon. In addition to the film, preparatory materials including sketches, collages, and storyboards are on display.

CCA_Other_Space_Odyssey_1Conscious that manned space exploration also implied a return to earth, in 1974 Poli began the research for Cultura Materiale Extraurbana (Extra-Urban Material Culture) in parallel with several members of Superstudio. Challenging the optimism and technological dependence of space explorations, the protagonist of one chapter in this project was Zeno, a Tuscan peasant, whom Poli continued to study with Zeno - research on a self-sufficient culture. In a second gallery, Zeno’s tools are on display, along with a series of drawings made by Poli in an attempt to document and to understand Zeno’s world. A large-scale drawing illustrates the contrast between the clothes worn by Zeno and the spacesuit of astronauts such as Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. In contrast to the astronauts of the Apollo missions, who required highly sophisticated capsules and suits to survive in their new environments, Zeno used and reused the same objects; applying his resourcefulness in making and readapting them, he was completely self-sufficient. Poli’s current reflections are crystallized in the 2008 collage

Zeno and Aldrin meet in Riparbella, which illustrates the relationship between the two characters, while highlighting the principal theme of the exhibition: the rediscovery of earth through the exploration of space.

EXHIBITION PUBLICATION
Other Space Odysseys, a publication edited by Giovanna Borasi and Mirko Zardini accompanies the exhibition. Available in both English and French editions, the book features illustrated interviews between Giovanna Borasi and both Greg Lynn and Michael Maltzan. Alessandro Poli has written an original text (Nearing the Moon to the Earth), as well as a fictional interview between the astronaut Aldrin and the farmer Zeno. The projects of Lynn, Maltzan, and Poli are presented through descriptive texts, original documents, and illustrations. Giovanna Borasi (Vantage Points Accessible for the First Time: A Story in Six Chapters) and Mirko Zardini (Being Zeno Fiaschi Today) also contribute essays to the volume.

Co-published by the CCA and Lars Muller, the book will be available in April through the CCA Bookstore for $35 CAD (www.cca.qc.ca/bookstore). PUBLIC PROGRAMS

A series of free public lectures accompany the exhibition, beginning with Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, and Alessandro Poli on Wednesday, 7 April at 6 pm. The architects discuss the ideas and implications of space in relation to their work and the projects presented in the exhibition. The Post-vernissage for Other Space Odysseys takes place on Thursday, 8 April from 8 pm to 11 pm, featuring DJ Truspin and video projections by Brille Brille. Visitors are entitled to one free drink per person between 8 and 9 pm, as well as a 10% discount on a selection of space-related publications at the CCA Bookstore. Beginning Thursday, 15 April, a series of lectures on the theme of Testing at Home explore other worlds here on earth, their possibilities and implications. Extreme conditions create locales where people can only venture at great risk; these can be special places of interest for scientists and artists, sometimes hiding secrets, treasures or knowledge. Exploring other worlds on Earth can be preparation for leaving the planet altogether.

Within this series four speakers present their research and experiments at the CCA: journalist Mike Neal presents Mars in Utah, a low-tech space simulation program (15 April); Alain Berinstain, Director, Space Exploration and Planetary Exploration at the Canadian Space Agency, discusses how life support systems for space are developed in the arctic (6 May); artists Hilario Isola and Matteo Norzi speak on

Jacques Cousteau’s Conshelf II underwater base (13 May); and Matthew Coolidge, Director of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, Los Angeles, presents US aeronautical and nuclear testing grounds (27 May).

Two family programs accompany the exhibition: Ticket to Outer Space and Ideas of the Universe. The second of these two workshops is developed in collaboration with the Canadian Space Agency.
