Description

And Now the Ensemble! is intended as a challenge to architects, their clients, and commissioning authorities to understand and create urban development as a dynamic and collective work of art; in short, to make dialogue central to design. Design, atmosphere, and use can make every new building relate to its local surroundings. As a design process, this contextual expansion does not simply imitate the urban pattern, but interprets what is already there, to some extent modernizes it, makes the familiar alien by employing unusual atmospheric imagery, and ultimately transforms the accumulated chaos of soloists into an orchestrated whole. Pro Helvetia has commissioned this publication to accompany Miroslav Siks official contribution for the Swiss Pavilion at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale.

About the Author

Peter Hetherington, former regional affairs and northern editor of The Guardian, was a reporter at The Journal, Newcastle, covering local government – focussing on local politics and redevelopment – during the early 70s. Latterly he has written about planning, housing, regeneration and local government for The Guardian and other publications, and travelled extensively in Britain and overseas covering that field. He was a board member of the government's former Academy for Sustainable Communities, a member of its former urban sounding board, and is currently a vice president, trustee and policy council member of the Town and Country Planning Association.
