conceived by DS+R in collaboration with rockwell group as an ‘architecture of infrastructure’, the shed has been designed to physically change at will. the 200,000 square-foot venue comprises a permanent base structure and a telescoping outer shell, which can be deployed over the adjoining plaza. this enables the institution to create an adaptable 17,000 square-foot hall that is light, sound, and temperature controlled. read more about the project on designboom here.

‘relations’, the second exhibition, presents the work of LA-based firm platform for architecture + research, or PAR. founded by jennifer marmon, PAR seeks to question the role and limits of architecture by exploring universal topics as a means to expand their discipline. the installation illustrates the various strategies used by the office to develop its specific design approach that aims to establish a dialogue with people as well as local conditions.

the exhibition presents buildings, competition entries, and urban studies, ranging in scale from small houses to museum concepts. one of the featured projects is the wilshire tower conceived for los angeles. the project proposes a new model of high-rise courtyard housing, integrated with mass transit, on LACMA’s proposed tower site along wilshire boulevard. the scheme appears as a 930 foot-tall (283m) stack of individual houses, each with a direct connection to nature through oversized terraces. both exhibitions remain on display at aedes architecture forum in berlin until october 19, 2017.
