Living in the Future

On 28 February 2009, the philosopher Peter Sloterdijk and the designer Werner Sobek discussed their ideas of living in the future. In his work about “Wohnschäume” (Spheres III) Sloterdijk has developed 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 applies innovative materials and methods. A model of his research project R129 was part of the widely acclaimed exhibition “Interieur/Exterieur. Living in Art.” at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, where the two visionaries held their dialogue. A recording of this dialogue (German language only) may be watched on Youtube at
