GAM.09 Walls: Spatial Sequences scrutinizes the wall as an architectural element in terms of both its actual structure and its traditional function. Contemporary technological innovations and developments are currently broadening our conception of the wall, assigning it new functions that extend beyond the mere support of loads or the separation between inside and outside. The contributions compiled in GAM.09 reconsider walls as dynamic, active, and connective elements by analyzing the use of innovative materials and processing technologies or presenting conceptual designs, analyses, case studies, and projects.
