Spatial analysis of the territory in question. What are the territorial mechanisms hidden? Who controls which spaces? Who manages them? With the exhibition «Under te radar», the S AM visits the spatial analysis methods of the territory which takes place before and after an act of construction. Some hidden mechanisms can be revealed by architects, who do a real investigation work.
The group exhibition will show our experimental and international research project “Parallel Sprawl”, which compares the exploration of suburban landscapes in Switzerland and in Kosovo.
