“Events: Situating the Temporary”

by Herman Verkerk/EventArchitectuur

Architecture and design interventions, cutting-edge interior and exhibition design

“Events: Situating the Temporary” is dedicated to the temporary in architecture, to its qualities, possibilities and effects, and to the place it occupies in contemporary history.
The book draws a connection between the development of the Amsterdam-based design office EventArchitectuur’s body of work over twenty-five years of practice, and the transforming understanding of a time based architecture. Through conversation between Herman Verkerk and his team with former collaborators and other makers, curators, and theorists, including Bernard Tschumi, Beatriz Colomina, Dirk van den Heuvel, Rianne Makkink, Andreas Angelidakis, Ellen Blumenstein and many others, “Events: Situating the Temporary” defines the contours of temporary architecture as a hybrid field of cultural production reflecting the spirit of the times and associated with different disciplines, including art, design, literature and performance.
The publication, designed by graphic design studio Experimental Jetset, with visual essays by Johannes Schwartz and Alexander van Slobbe, proposes the temporary as the place where contemporary architecture is linked to creative and form-finding new realities (proposals, utopias, dystopias, and fantasies), and to the quest for alternative futures.

The book is for sale at bookshops around the world specialized in art, design and architecture.
