Peter Sloterdijk, probably the most prominent modern philosopher and the designer Werner Sobek discuss their ideas of living in the future. In his work about “Wohnschäume” (Spheres III) Sloterdijk developes a philosophy about space which has a far-reaching effect on the existing architectural theory.In his quest for visionary forms of living Werner Sobek, architect and engineer, applies innovative materials and methods. A model of his research project R129, a residential glass ellipsoid, was part of the widely acclaimed exhibition “Interieur/Exterieur. Living in Art.” at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, where, in the foyer with standing room only, the two visionaries held their dialogue on 28 February 2009.
A recording of this dialogue (German language only) is available on a limited edition DVD for 15.- Euro plus shipping and handling. For orders, please mail to moc.kebosrenrew@liam
