Located in the west south suburb of Beijing, the site of the exhibition park for the 9th China (Beijing) International Garden Expo in 2013 is in natural surroundings close to mountain, river, and wetland. As a response in design, Atelier 11’s proposal for the main pavilion of the Expo aims to create an artificial landscape, rather than a manmade construction, to echo the park’s site condition and the Expo’s particular theme.

The premise of the project entitled “1:1”, exhibited in the Romanian Pavilion from Giardini di Castello, is a radical one: architecture as translation of a unique idea, ultimately determining and defining the space we inhabit. The concept is to “exhibit space” and, by doing so, to explore its various instances. A precise and quantifiable fact is related to the idea of “space”: 94.4 m2 person is the population density level in Bucharest. This is a specific and local relation that represents the urban condition in Romania. It illustrates, at the same time, both an individual and a collective state of existence.

A reinterpretation of the ateliers on the Zomerdijkstraat
Atelier Havoc Milk has been constructed on a scale 1 : 2 as part of the exhibition atelier Malkovich concerning the future atelier. Instead of starting from scratch, the design is all about the reinterpretation of the monumental atelier/habitats on the Zomerdijkstraat in Amsterdam (1932-1934). The archetypical atelier with its high ceilings and northern light has got great qualities. The ateliers on the Zomerdijkstraat possess these qualities and rest on a famous artist’s tradition. It would be a shame to ignore this archetypical monument when building an atelier for the future.

Since the last decade of the xx century, it has been usual, especially in the old Europe, the commission of projects demanding the conservation, renovation and conversion of constructions from a recent and distant past and from the most diverse typologies, and cultural matrices – This Interior architecture often becomes a field of experimentation for architectural ideas and one of the most challenging themes of the contemporary city. Not only because of urban conditions but also because of historical, social and political demands.

The ‘désir du neutre’ is a ‘pathos’, Roland Barthes would have said, a dream of modern architecture that in today’s context expresses a critical position that is particularly contentious. The desire for neutrality sets itself up in direct opposition to the desires for distinction, for expression, to be symbolic, for a sense of identity or branding. It is a search for a state that suspends the tensions between architecture and its milieu and within the composition of architecture itself. But the desire for neutrality is not neutral. It conveys an ethical and aesthetic commitment which manifests itself not by failing to act or by retreating, but rather by creating strategies and figures that are simultaneously precise and strong.
