Quaderns - Guerrilla interviews #2 | Sam Jacob

Quaderns has been at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice and has asked to several participants which were their responses to the notion of Common Ground posed by the curator of this edition, David Chipperfield.

We present several responses to an idea with fuzzy boundaries, where the Common, beyond a return to convention, appears once again to be defined by different attitudes and approaches addressing practical and theoretical layers of architecture.

Sam Jacob is co-founder of FAT [Fashion Architecture Taste], an architecture office with an international reputation for delivering outstanding and award winning projects at a range of scales and for many different uses. He also write the blog Strange Harvest.

Stan Allen and Marc McQuade eds., Landform Building: Architecture’s New Terrain, (Zurich: Lars Muller, 2011)
Landform Building sets out to examine the many ways in which landscape effects are manifest in architecture today: not as a cross-disciplinary phenomenon (architects working on the landscape) but as new design techniques, new formal strategies and technical problems within architecture itself.
Landform building in contemporary architecture is more than a formal strategy. New technologies, new design techniques and a demand for enhanced environmental performance have provoked a re-thinking of architecture’s traditional relationship to the ground. Some of today’s most innovative buildings no longer occupy a given site but instead, construct the site itself.
