パンデミック後のライフデザインと建築を探る |
Exploring Life Design and Architecture after the Pandemic


The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Endangering Our Civitas|コロナウイルスの流行は私たちのキウィタス[社会組織としての都市]を危険にさらしている

We are just beginning to anticipate the consequences of our common coronavirus-related behavior: Not only have we maneuvered ourselves into the biggest economic crisis since the Second World War and plunged several industries into the abyss, but we are undermining our own social foundations, that have resulted in the most successful product of our civilization to date: the city, the civitas, the basis of civilization. By constantly practicing the new, careful hygiene measures, we have internalized that we should treat other people with suspicion and at a distance and that we should stay away from large gatherings of people at all. No large family celebrations, no folk festivals, no football games, no Oktoberfest, no club nights, conferences or demonstrations. No public transport, no groups in elevators, no open-plan offices, no shared tables in restaurants.

Where does our “new normal” behavior lead? What are the consequences for architecture, housing, urban planning and infrastructures? Recently unchallenged paradigms are being thrown overboard, such as more densification in cities, less individual traffic, smaller private living areas, but more communal uses, less urban sprawl in the countryside and in the suburbs. What will become of us as social beings that don’t just want to exchange factual information? What will become of our cities, where something new could always arise when supposedly irreconcilable opposites collide?


「ニューノーマル(新常態)」という様態は私たちをどこに連れて行くのか?建築、住宅、都市計画、インフラストラクチャーにどのような結果をもたらすのか? 最近、都市の高密度化、個人の交通量の減少、個人の居住エリアの縮小、共同利用の増加、田舎や郊外での都市のスプロール現象の減少といった、論議されていないパラダイムが放棄されている。事実に基づいた情報交換を欲しない社会的存在となる私たちは、どうなるのだろうか?相容れないはずの相反するものがぶつかり合うことで、常に新しいものが生まれる可能性を秘めた都市はどうなるのだろうか?

Dipl.-Ing. Peter Cachola Schmalピーター・カチョーラ・シュマル

Director, Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM), Frankfurt, Germany|ドイツ建築博物館(DAM)館長(フランクフルト、ドイツ)

Short bio: Peter Cachola Schmal is the Director of the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM)- the German architecture museum – in Frankfurt. Trained as an Architect, he has been director since 2006, taking the DAM to the top of the field in Germany. The museum and its vast archives not only cater to the profession but also to the general public in the fields of architecture, urban planning and related fields such as infrastructure and social politics. He is showing up to 15 new exhibitions each year at the museum and has organized various awards such as the annual DAM Preis for Architecture in Germany, the biannual International Highrise Award, or the annual DAM Book Award. A lot of conferences, symposia and lectures are being hosted at the DAM. Peter Cachola Schmal has represented Germany at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016 with the widely discussed “Making Heimat, Germany Arrival Country” theme, and in 2007 at the Sao Paulo Architecture Biennal. He has taught in Germany and lectured world-wide.

ピーター・カチョーラ・シュマルは、フランクフルトにあるドイツ建築博物館(DAM)の館長である。建築家として教育され、2006年から館長を務め、DAMをドイツの建築界のトップに押し上げた。この博物館とその膨大なアーカイブを、建築の専門家だけでなく、建築、都市計画、インフラストラクチャーや社会政治などの関連分野の一般の人々にも提供している。毎年15回の新しい展覧会を開催しており、毎年ドイツで開催されるDAM建築賞、年2回の国際高層建築賞、毎年開催されるDAM図書賞など、様々な賞を企画している。DAMでは多くの会議、シンポジウム、講演会が開催されている。ピーター・カチョーラ・シュマルは、2016年のヴェネツィア建築ビエンナーレで広く議論されたテーマ「Making Heimat, Germany Arrival Country」、そして、2007年のサンパウロ建築ビエンナーレではドイツ代表として参加した。ドイツで教鞭をとり、世界各地で講演を行っている。

Immersive Social Virtual Realities: The Construction of Meaning in Post-pandemic Architecture|没入型ソーシャル・バーチャル・リアリティ:パンデミック後の建築における意味の構築

Today, new realities can be constructed to enrich the experience of and create opportunities in virtual environments. In architecture, the relationship between the tangible and intangible is crucial for values to be understood. Immersive technologies serve as a medium to communicate speculative ideas and engage discussion, transporting a user to a site inaccessible in reality. Questions about the viability of virtual environments become increasingly important. The talk investigates how novel realities alter the experience of the tangible and intangible in virtual environments. It portrays socio-cultural meanings that are interpreted by users according to their own ideology, without influence from other users and speculate on authenticity within the virtual realm.


Prof. Dr. Marc Aurel Schnabelマーク・アウレル・シュナベル

Nothing new? Architectural research for life (before and) after the pandemic|新しいものはないのか?パンデミック前と後の生活のための建築研究

Life might not be radically different after the pandemic, but the pandemic has confronted us with the inefficiencies in the way our lives, and the built environment as an extension of this, have been organized. Why do we need to commute daily between residential, suburban neighborhoods and a Central Business District, when much of the same work can be done from the comfort of our home or distributed workplaces nearby. This question is not new, but the ‘new normal’ has prioritized it. When the School of Design and Environment at NUS conceived its new SDE4 building, it recognized that we must practice the sustainability we teach in Architectural education and designed and constructed a building that adopts, among other features, a hybrid cooling system where air is cooled to a higher degree, never recirculated, and ventilators assist in achieving a comfortable indoor climate. While increasing sustainability and improving well-being, it is also better adapted to the addressing the pandemic, with windows that can be opened and indoor air that is never recirculated but always drawn from the outside. None of these ideas are new, but we have simply been too locked into our habitual ways of doing things. I will present a number of research projects that were all conceived off before the pandemic but will assist in designing for life and architecture after the pandemic.
