the canadian centre for architecture (CCA) recently opened their latest show other space odysseys featuring the work of architects greg lynn, michael maltzan and alessandro poli. the exhibit explores each architect’s approach to space exploration and how they have used it to test new ideas for life on earth. working with the theme of space exploration, each architect has expressed their ideas using a wide variety of media including models, collages, animations, objects and even film. rather than an exhibition about space architecture CCA curator mirko zardini believes, ‘this exhibition proposes a letting go of architecture understood as the production of material goods in favour of architecture as the production of ideas’. ‘other space odysseys,’ a publication edited by giovanna borasi and mirko zardini accompanies the exhibition in both an english and french editions.

michael maltzan’s proposed new building for the jet propulsion laboratory (JPL), a NASA laboratory in pasadena, california, seeks to bridge the chasm between the emotional qualities of space exploration and the bureaucratic nature of the scientific research that underlies these missions.other space odysseys: greg lynn, michael maltzan, alessandro poli other space odysseys: greg lynn, michael maltzan, alessandro poli, installation view at the CCA © CCA, montreal

the 1969 moon landing radically changed alessandro poli’s vision of planet earth, leading him to develop a new idea of geography. other space odysseys revisits projects of his that explored drastically different proposals for connecting the earth’s environment to the new reality of outer space.
