🌪Zoe Zenghelis, Parc Citroën, OMA, 1985, oil on paper, 40 x 30 cm🌪

This is the last OMA project Zoe Zenghelis has been working on.

Parc Citroen Cevennes:

Two primary ambitions have inspired the design of this park. To design a landscape completely free of nostalgia through the development of a series of formal relationships with the existing and projected architectures that will define the built perimeter of the park.

In other words, we have tried to develop a vegetal aesthetic that could equal the powerful – but so far unrecognised beauty of the late 20th century landscape.

To respond to the programmatic potential of the surroundings, the quartier on three sides and the Seine on the fourth.

Around the central “metropolitan” meadow a perimeter zone is conceived as a “forest” out of which different rooms are scooped, each with its own character in direct connection with the neighbouring architecture.

Cotlenko Appartment, 1988-1990

‘Regeneration’ of a flat in Bordeaux by Jacques Hondelatte, Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal.

I’d like to live in the Taj Mahal, the Pise tower, in the Statue of Liberty, the Grenada gardens, in any of La Défense projects by Jean Nouvel, the Cave of Altamira, St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Seville arenas, an evanescent 747....
When I speak of the world, for me, this house is one of them.

Kochstrasse / Friedrichstrasse Housing:
In the debate on the reconstruction of the European City and Berlin in particular the attitude of OMA was to establish a retroactive concept based on inherent but latent principles of the urban context. Rather than mere restoration or reinterpretation of the 18th century block, the project set out to the contradictory characteristics of the site in order to invest in the project as a definition of Contemporaneity.

The OMA project combines a functional brief with the iconographic condition of the Checkpoint area into an ensemble that contrasts the memory of Friedrichstrasse as painted by Kirchner with the reality of the Wall and the need to reconcile a reconstitution of the traditional idea of the street with the contemporary conditions in the Checkpoint area.

Zoe Zenghelis: Checkpoint Charlie (Two Clouds), OMA, 1982, acrylic on paper, 90 x 120 cm

The commission followed two competition entries OMA submitted to the Internationale Bauaustellung (IBA) in 1981. The program includes 26 apartments which occur as three types: 1. Penthouses 2. Three floors of flats which are reached from a double-height gallery 3. Garden access maisonettes. The apartments sit on a podium above the new Checkpoint facilities for customs workers and Allied forces. The building was completed shortly after the Berlin Wall came down.

The site is in the baroque area of Friedrichstadt, which is now dominated by the architectural remains of the pre- and post-war period, the Berlin Wall and the Checkpoint (the East/West border crossing for non-residents).

The project exploits the latent qualities of the site. The building functions as a series of pavilions for border control which form a podium, with a ‘Miethaus’ on top. It is lifted off the ground, separating the housing from the Checkpoint and leaving the street level to activities related to border control, which penetrate to the back of the site and include an underground car park.

Zoe Zenghelis: Do you remember how perfect everything was?

Selling exhibition open till 19 December.

The first retrospective exhibition of the works of Zoe Zenghelis. As a two part exhibition with the Architectural Association, Betts Project presents the first part as a review of Zenghelis’ early paintings from the 1960s, her years at OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) including works of the Hotel Sphinx project, Roosevelt Island, Antiparos Villas, Checkpoint Charlie and Parc Citroën through to recent works made in 2020. Stretched between abstract metropolitan tectonics and landscape structures, the selection of Zenghelis’ paintings represent an enquiry into absent architectural projects. An exhibition catalogue published by Betts Project will accompany the exhibition, while the second part of the project will be hosted by the AA in Janurary 2021.
