Throwback to 2014 when we contributed the installation „Thicket“ with @barkowleibinger @fbarkow to the exhibition „how soon is now“ @galeriejudin. Made of over 4000 super thin metal rods the installation evokes a strong reaction of delusion and disorientation, just like being lost in a thicket.

On Thursday we are invited to @tu_berlin by @fgdeco @modulorbeat to speak about the rocky way which we walked at @tu.braunschweig in the past 7 years to get our #studierendenhaustubraunschweig going. The lecture is open so please tune in. With @maxhacke ...

Roanoke Point, Long Island, NY 2018

Feasibility study for a private client.
Referencing Paul Virilio’s famous Bunker Archeology, the structure is protecting an interior from possible threats (hurricanes), whilst at the same time it’s orientation is activating the surrounding wild landscape.

The new Studierendenhaus marks the end of the campus and the beginning of the green belt along the River Oker. With its framed exterior space the building incorporates parts of the natural world. With @maxhacke ...

In love with this detail. The primary structure is entirely made of the same 10x10cm hollow profile. To keep the structure as slim as possible and to ensure a maximum of transparency we decided to mount the facade directly onto the primary structure. The hollow section also allows for the integration of wiring, necessary to provide an electricity grid within an open space concept. With @maxhacke and our favorite engineers from @knippershelbig ...

This diagram explains our design strategy for the nearly finished Studierendenhaus on the grounds of the @tu.braunschweig. In order to create a contemporary, multi-disciplinary working environment, we decided for a 3 dimensional spatial concept where islands are created through platforms that are connected via bridges and stairs. This way we minimized traffic areas and ensured equal quality of desk space throughout the structure. We believe that not every activity throughout the year needs a facade, therefore our system continues outside, providing workstations in the exterior as well as shading devices for the facade.

In our studio we investigated new types of structures for a near future of material shortage and climate consciousness. As a model of cohabitation, with others but also with external factors like the climate, this typology promotes a new form of semi-outdoor lifestyle.

Can architecture be like an atmosphere? By using the energy of the sun to create an architectural volume, the installation behaves in synergy with planetary constellations and is a direct transformation of energy into architectural space. Known as the coriolis effect, the installation creates waves similar to the Rossby-Waves, giant serpentine streams of high altitude winds, largely responsible for the global weather. Sunsight to Sunclipse is a space that represents a new type of architecture which understands itself as part of a larger planetary system that is fluid, dynamic and responsive.
