Extremes Exhibition at the Dostoevsky Library, Moscow. 3rd - 25th March 2018

Dostoevsky - Extremes (53 of 55).jpg
    curator: Gleb Sobalev  design: studio DA (Georgia Hablutzel, Pierre d’Avoine, Ryan McStay)  making: James O’Brien, Joseph Van der Steen, David Diaz Bustamente and students from Interior Architecture, British Higher School of Art and Design, Moscow:  Franziska Dederer Nina Matveenko Alena Bulgakova Yulia Osina Ilona Agazhanova Ksenia Romanova Kristina Mikryukova  production: Panopus Printing PRS Ltd, London     Dwelling on the future: the seaside, middle England and the metropolis is the title of a book which Pierre d’Avoine (studio DA) is currently writing. It includes ten projects for housing in the UK designed by studio DA and collaborators since the start of the new millennium. EXTREMES focuses on proposals for more than just housing and asks how does the architect respond to the challenge of providing humane places in which to live for a growing, multifarious population in an increasingly divided world – the paradox of globalization. People – individuals, groups, societies can and do have widely different goals and aspirations. Is it possible to plan for and realize a world in which a decent level of comfort and stability is available for even the poorest members of societies? EXTREMES includes a range of work by studio DA, including proposals for luxury housing and designs for low cost dwellings, which addresses the needs and desires of potential inhabitants. We are interested in an inclusive approach to the design of settlements that recognizes and celebrates difference – an approach that demands a fresh political vision to resolve humanity’s increasing inequality for the benefit of all in the hope that everyone may be taken into the future.*  *with reference to the Kabakovs’ artwork ‘not everyone can be taken into the future.’
