Contemplating the Void: Bad Architects Group

A few months ago, the Guggenheim Museum exhibited Contemplating the Void in honor of the museum’s 50th anniversary.  After receiving 200 submissions, curators from the museum selected five winners.  We’ve shared different proposals with you previously on AD, and today, we bring you Bad Architects Group’s winning Void Codition.  In German, void or “Luftraum“, literally translates to “air-space“. By conditioning the given air, which is already present in the void, the architects create the possibility to access the space as is without interrupting how it currently exists.  The proposal “adds another dimension or layer to the existing experience in form of a vertical wind tunnel.”
