Kristian Koreman (ZUS)


ZUS (Zones Urbaines Sensibles) researches and intervenes in the contemporary urban landscape with productions ranging from urban plans and architecture to installations and fashion. Within this complex field ZUS finds itself constantly in between two positions: those of co-author and of critic.

YES
ZUS works with a belief that every place has the potential to become unique and thrilling. A spatial intervention should therefore always be inspired by the specific qualities of the situation and driven by an optimistic attitude. ZUS wants to deal with rapid changing conditions and to adapt its tactics to give shape to our constantly modernizing society. With designs for urban districts, parcs, public spaces, buildings and installations, ZUS tries to contribute to a collective and sustainable future.

NO
Architecture has become marginalized in the last two decades by responding mainly to the demands of the market. ZUS reclaims the public role of the architect by making social challenges explicit by means of unsolicited architecture and architectural activism. With proposals, exhibitions and publications ZUS not only contributes but also questions and criticizes the field it works in. (Source: ZUS website)
