Scholzberg tower, HAMR. 2006.

"Scholzberg was built out of our joy at having been able to buy a plot of land, and in the oldest tradition we raised a high building on it. The ancient Greeks would have called it an omphalos, a “navel of the earth”. In this project, we worked in collaboration with Honza Mach, and succeeded with an absolutely elementary plan, in which the circular rotation of the spiral staircase is inscribed into the rectangular space so that it just misses the corners and slightly sticks out on the sides. What appeared was a kind of rotating staircase, slightly recalling the double helix of the DNA molecule, one of those pleasant surprises that occasionally happen to us builders. The degree of planning in this building was absolutely perfect, and it’s wonderful that it was built entirely by students. Another wonderful thing is that most of our neighbours and visitors fi nd this structure to be welcoming, attractive and Pleasant".

Liberation through laziness, some chronopolitical remarks

Contemporary capitalism prods us to make the most of our potential, sticking with the program and doing our best. Sven Lütticken offers fascinating insights into the concepts of sleep and boredom and the potential of refusal as a counter-politics of the times, whose hero might be Melville’s Bartleby, the scrivener who not only stops writing but also explains that he would “prefer not to.” Intuition tells us that these modern concepts developed between the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution are as anachronistic as they are absolutely timely today.
