“Cosmic Latte: Architecture Beige Manifesto” is based on the design research studio “Beige” that Jürgen Mayer H. and Marc Kushner taught at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, New York in 2004. In 2014, “Beige” developed into a larger installation at Galerie Judin in Berlin as part of the group show How Soon is Now. In 2015 Jürgen Mayer H.’s and Philip Ursprung’s proposal “Cosmic Latte: The Universe is Beige” with Armin Linke, Isabel Mundry and Wermke/Leinkauf & Henke was a finalist for the German Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. For the Chicago Architecture Biennial 2017 the theme is articulated as a manifesto on today’s architecture and involves students from ETH Zürich and Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design.
