3rd-year Master of Architecture student Ayesha Ghosh speaks with Swiss architect Christian Kerez, who delivered the opening lecture of Columbia GSAPP’s Spring 2017 Semester. Kerez’s recent projects include Incidental Space at the Swiss Pavillion of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, an amorphous structure which raised questions of the limits of imagination and technical feasibility in architecture today.
“We did more than 300 models to really come up with this one. And the criteria – the ultimate criteria – for selecting the one and only model that would be scaled and later on built in Venice was that it had strangeness as a major quality.”
