Archivists of the discontinuous: Architecture at the edge The city as machine. The city as collage. Urban agglomeration as the interim city, as the ersatz or even the abandoned city? Even designations such as the murdered city have been used. Slogans with different meanings and orientations as well as theoretical concepts adopted by very different ideologies and schools of urban planning have entered the intellectual, conceptual discourse on urbanism and urban life, on plannability and entropy, on civil society, ecological urban culture and informal urban economy. The architects Kenny Cupers, a Belgian living in London, and Markus Miessen, a German educated in Scotland, have created an architectural study project that reflects habitats in photos - 'Spaces of Uncertainty'. The work presented here in the form of an exhibition that will be touring Europe until 2004 takes a critical look at the intersecting point of inside, outside and aside architecture. The project is located at the meeting point between a micro and a macro view of the 'city" as contextual myth. Using the example of Berlin - both architects/artists/theoreticians worked in the Libeskind studio for some time - the issue is demonstrated in paradigmatic terms, positioned at the interface between the dissonance, contingency and discontinuity of contemporary life as lived by modern city dwellers.
