Money and space have always been directly linked. Even in the early history of construction, building was associated with power. Property and the associated industry represent the most powerful economic sector. The share of buildings in the total assets of industry, commerce and private individuals is enormous. The state siphons off tax revenue from property at various points. In addition, a lot of money from the private and financial sectors, as well as from pension funds, is invested in property due to negative interest rates and the high demand for investment opportunities.

Who owns our buildings and who or what decides where and how they are built? Is it a question of actual need, utility, power, speculation or profit? Does demand determine construction or is it dictated by the possibility of financial investments and tax breaks? What is the significance of space in today's and tomorrow's world? On what levels does money play a role in architecture? And if money is seen as a form of thought, how is this reflected in the buildings created against this background?

For this project, schauraum-b is working together with the FHNW / HGK / Institute IXDM / Process Design BA at HyperWerk.
