2. Reflections on buildings as artifacts that produce culture

2. REFLECTIONS ON BUILDINGS AS ARTIFACTS THAT PRODUCE CULTURE

a. Find any projects that deal with endurance, ideology, political malleability, immersive passivity (allows surrounds to infiltrate), the eternal gaze, ambiguity of position in space, product of the times, constantly changing experience, escapism, didactic place, unnatural inhabitation, and time-keeping.
b. Ruination as a contemporary condition coincident to inhabitation
c. the ruin as cultural performance v. that of display (modification of the ruin over time and the live archive?)
d. introduce the idea of ruination-ergo-time, and what would happen if you could inhabit the ruin through ruination (what on earth does this mean?)


I've been trying to find such examples. The 2006 exhibition Ideal City-Invisible Cities may give some clues. Presumably, the architecture created in the ideal city would communicate to some extent the ideals by which it owes its existence. Such spaces would be didactic, enduring, and ideological. Here are two links with overviews:

Ideal City-Invisible Cities exhibition website

and

An art blog article

Also, I found these projects in a book called Rethinking: Space, Time, Architecture. The book is generally a collection of verbiage and pretentious language but some of the pictures are informative:

1. "Marking Time and Territory"
Colin Ardley, artist with Hermann Scheidt, architect


2. Cafe Bravo
Dan Graham, artist with Johanne Nalbach, architect


3. "Hohe Dosierung"
Coco Kuhn, artist with K. Hufnagel, architect


4. "Why is it Called Paradise?"
Christoph Mayer, artist



Finally, here are two installations by Richard Sera and a drawing by somebody unknown and without citation:
