The growing number of biennales and other similar events such as art fairs, expos and new types of museums shift away from the traditional gallery or museum. As the different types cross-pollinate and merge, a new model for art display, production, and market has emerged. It is within this new model that this studio positions itself, in intermediate space between art and architecture; architecture and landscape; art, architecture, and the city; architecture and the post-industrial urban condition. It can be argued that within this category, the appearance of the building or the building itself is no longer relevant, but that it is the works of art and the exhibitions and the public that define the museum. How can architects stake a claim in this model?
