WS 2014/2015 Gas Stations* Catalogue


Gas Stations* Catalogue

Winter 2014/2015

The gas station was the only true modern typology: with no history and no place. It was universal in that it addressed neither country nor countryside, but the technological being on the road. The gas station was the absolute architecture icon of the twentieth century. If its evolution reflected functional or infrastructural demands, it more importantly exhibited socio-cultural, economic, and political ideologies—from the fifties, when mobility used to mean freedom, to the nineties grocery hybrids. The gas station always stood for both models, the decorated shed and the duck: cover and (liquid) core, promotion and routine. It has been film set, ready-made, experiment, and corporate design.
What is happening to the gas station today and tomorrow? Are there programs, interpretations, or visions for the dinosaur? Is it a museum of the twentieth century?

The project investigates the gas station as a historical artifact in its layered social, political, and aesthetic meanings. It is set up to speculate on the future of the gas station, as a monument, a Wunderkammer, a church, a villa, etc.
