Chepos 71 (May 2023)
The 71th edition of the Chepos has as core setting the scene. Film and architecture share the frame binding its elements. It is therefore the exploration theme of this edition: what builds the scenography or how does the representation of the space in movies and theatre inspire future generations of various designers to act upon the emerging challenges? With the hope of this edition to bring you the joy of looking behind the scenes of film and theatre, it has also been created to connect the seemingly discordant notions and shows that there is a multiplicity of strings lying merging the nature of the two.
Chepos 70 (October 2022)
The world has barely changed from a long time ago: bombs fly, epidemics happen, nonchalant to our standard of modern society, in the same manner as a century ago. In the midst of chaos, the soul urges to find the end of a knot. This sudden change in 2022 inspired and lead to the release of the 70th edition of the Chepos, to analyse how much this insanity, for which we are forced to helplessly observe, appears as new, but is resilient as the long-forgotten same old. From our own personal standpoint as architects: how does the change interact with us? What is left – and what is alternated?
Chepos 68 (September 2021)
Resilience: The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. It is to be found on multiple levels, that of the human, the building and that of the city. It is what is needed as we face the impossible. When no silver lining is to be seen, we hold on to our resilience. As resilience is not only defined by the recovery after tough times pass, but by the change in the face of it, to become stronger as we get through it. The wonder of this is how we can even set our resilience in stone by saying no to mother nature, time itself and even humanity to build impossible structures with the lessons we learn. the theme of edition 68 is all about that, challenging the impossible and pushing it away. Learning and recovering.
