THE GREENHOUSE TALKS / LIMBO SPACE (2018)

Curated by Aaron Betsky and promoted by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Rome, the third edition of Greenhouse Talks (25 May 2018) consists in a conversation on the topic of LIMBO SPACE.


In the words of the curator: “in the spaces where we wait, tarry, or just wile away the time, the strictures and structures of good architecture dissolve. In the waiting rooms at airports, government bureaucracies, or doctors' offices, in the places to where we escape to do little to nothing, and in the cocoons we create by using either the latest technology or ancient meditation techniques to come to ourselves, boundaries dissolve. We spend more and more of our time in such spaces. They are the purgatory between the hell of everyday reality and the seamless heaven of virtual social space -or the other way around. What is the architecture of such not-quite-free spaces, and how should design what is meant to fade away? What do such spaces tell us about the future of architecture?" 

Starting from here, Aaron Betsky conducted a conversation with photographer Iwan Baan and architects Maria Claudia Clemente (Labics), Nathalie de Vries (MVRDV), Elizabeth Diller (Diller Scofidio + Renfro), Andrés Jaque (Office for Political Innovation). Marina Otero Verzier, director of research of Het Nieuwe Instituut and curator of the 2018 Dutch Pavilion, offered some concluding remarks on the topic.
