“Narchitektur” presented by Visual Artist Sige Nagels, for the exhibition 

‘Dear 2050: Humans respond to climate change’, organized by Climanosco.

Oct. 24 – Nov. 6, St Annagasse 11, Zürich, 2020

Join Sige on a walk through Zürich where she takes you into the near future, where her architect’s and artist’s design answers and addresses climate change.

Just like nature carries Zürich, this installation carries 3d compositions of architecture & nature of nine locations in the heart of the city. Combined with painting & collage, this experience opens doors in your mind, making you hold on to these imaginations and visualizations of how we can evolve our cities into sustainable versions for our children and for nature.

Walking the streets of Zürich afterward will make you see this new reality of ‘’Narchitektur’’ for yourself. You’ll want to share stories of your favorite look-throughs with your beloved ones! It will make your dream almost real, you can touch it with your bare hands, and act upon it more.

The art installation was exhibited afterward to the rooftop of Hotel Sedartis, presenting my hometown Thalwil this vision on the 21st of November, 2020.

Prime Tower, Zürich: Dieses Gebäude ist ein Wahrzeichen für die Stadt Zürich. In dieser Kreation ist es als Prototyp dargestellt. Die Fassade besteht aus mehreren Schichten während die Vegetation integriert ist, um die Bauphysik des Gebäudes natürlicher zu steuern und weniger Ressourcen zu verbrauchen. Ich kann mir vorstellen, wie die Menschen, die im Hauptturm arbeiten, Naturszenarien geniessen. Eine Mutter, die mit ihren Kindern spazieren geht, teilt den Duft der Blumen in den Büschen und beobachtet die Schweizer Alpen 40 Meter über der Hardbrücke. Der Busfahrer fährt die Fahrgäste durch die Mauern der Natur.

Fussgängerinnen und Fussgänger gehen über Wegen, Plätze und zwischen den Gebäuden hindurch. Diese Oase lässt Sie Harmonie erleben. Für die Stadt senkt sie die Temperatur um mehrere Grad. Diese Realität schützt Sie, wenn es heiss ist, und bietet Ihnen im Winter einen Unterschlupf.

Die Maag Halle zum Beispiel nutzt Kunstlicht konsequent für ihre Dienstleistungen. So können Sie oberhalb der Maag Halle in einem mehrschichtigen Park spazieren gehen. Der Wind, der von Frau Gerolds Garten kommt, ist nicht so stark, während die Natur diesen neu erfundenen Industriestandort schützt und abschirmt.

Prime Tower, Zürich: This building is a landmark for the city of Zürich. In this creation, it is represented as a prototype. The facade is layered, while vegetation is integrated to steer the physics of the building more naturally, using fewer resources. I can see people working in the prime tower enjoying sceneries of nature. A mother walking with her children shares the smell of the flowers in the bushes watching the Swiss Alps 40 meters above Hardbrücke. The bus driver drives the passengers through the walls of nature.

Pedestrians walk above roads, squares, and in between the buildings. This oasis makes you experience harmony. For the city, it lowers the temperature by several degrees. This reality protects you when it’s hot and provides shelter in winter.

For example, Maag Halle thoroughly uses artificial light for her services. This allows you to walk above the Maag Halle in a multi-layered park. Oh, the wind coming from Frau Gerold’s Garten can not cut so hard while nature protects and shields this newly invented industrial site.
