From 31.08.2013 – 22.09.2013 the exhibition “Spatial Positions 5 – The Land Workshop” at the SAM Swiss Architecture Museum displays important steps the collaboration project “The Land”, which is located in the north of Thailand near the town Sanpatong, twenty kilometres southwest of the city of Chiang Mai.
“The show itself functions as a workshop anticipating the realisation-phase planned for the year 2014. In addition, London-based graphic designer Zak develops a new alphabet for the Land Workshop that is based on the participatory logic of the “corps exquisite”. Thus the concept of the exhibition reflects the different conditions of collaborating, exhibiting and building.” (http://www.sam-basel.org – accessed on 13.09.2013)
