4 Construction site supports

The Intervention reacts to the concrete location of the Flakturm (ominous, bunker-like „flak-gun towers“ built during the war which still stand in Vienna), confronting the historical and spatial dimensions of this particular space. I played with the idea of shifting the massive, historically over-determined metaphoric of the Flakturm, trying to make it more fragile. I react architectonically through a minimal intervention in space: Four construction supports are placed along one of the torn down walls, the traces of which are visible, as though these support had to support the space.
The idea behind the intervention was to upend the architectonic space in such a way as to add components of fragility and uncertainty to the massiveness of the real, former shelter.
