Tech Companies curated by Studio O+a

"Openness to new thinking is precisely what a designer craves on a project. We love being part of a process that leads to a better way of doing something. What makes these projects exciting is the innovative mindset of the clients. (…)What we strive for in our designs is a work environment that makes the people who work there more effective, more creative and happier."

Primo Orpilla, Principal at Studio O+a

Inside Outside curated by Studio MK27

"When I think of a new project I am always trying to search for the best solution for quality of space. The solution of a strong integration with the outdoors forms a part of this logic. For me, there is no distinction between an urban or a natural setting. In any place, it’s about the conquest of space."

Chinese Architecture Rooted in Place and Time curated by Atelier Li Xiaodong

"Architecture should always be tied to, and rooted in a specific time and place. So, rather than speaking of a specific ‘Chinese architecture’, I would rather speak of an architecture embedded within the region, belonging to that place. This goes for both modern as well as traditional architecture. The specificities of traditional ideas of Chinese architecture are often lost in contemporary practice, but together with the application of new technologies they could be reinterpreted in contemporary society."

In, On and Around Water curated by space&matter

"The water is a strong element that forces us as architects to think differently as opposed to when designing on land. Already in an early phase you have to think carefully about the use and positioning of the rooms in order to calculate the weight and its forces. Further changes to the layout might impact significantly on the construction."

Buildings for Politics curated by 3XN

"For me, the most interesting part of designing a political building is in telling the story behind an organization. I believe that all office buildings should reflect the organization they represent and their core values. When it is a political building the design assignment is more an obligation and should be even more evident in its expression and design."

Up in the Mountains curated by Plasma Studio

"We see mountain settings always in close relation with the surrounding topography. Specifically the topography is one of the most informing factors for a design in such a setting, and as a second comes the climate which in mountain settings might be more extreme than elsewhere. All of the selected projects have in common that at least partly they are all informed by the topography around them and the topography gets in a strong dialogue with the built project."

Geometric curated by Apollo Architects

"As a way to bring back a sense of nature to people, a feel for a universal aesthetic, and to respond to the physical senses while freeing our mind, geometric design is a must. I am attracted to a geometric approach simply because of its beauty. It gives a sense of unity with nature and its surroundings. Geometric design shapes iconic forms with a complexity that leaves a strong impression and makes the visitor want to experience the story of the space."

Table Manners curated by Arco

"A big change in table design, at least in Western Europe, is that the floor plans of houses have changed. Traditionally a house would have a kitchen with a kitchen table, a dining room with a dining table and a living room with a coffee table, altogether three separate rooms. Today we have more and more open plan houses with kitchen and living room as one open space. Then in-between the kitchen area and living room a big table, functioning as both kitchen, dining and office table. Here we eat, relax, work, play, read and so forth." - Jorre van Ast, Creative Director ARCO

Overlooking the Sea curated by Fran Silvestre

”Each project must be understood as a new form of experimentation in which the best is still to come. When you design a house along the coast or on a mountain, the most important part of the process is the dialogue. The house is designed for a specific client and the creative process of the house is part of the knowledge gained through a dialogue with their concerns and desires. The home is meant to become part of their identity and should end up being a reflection of themselves.”

Contemporary Conversions curated by JKArchitecture

"I think we benefit immensely from feeling emerged in an environment layered with interventions made over time. It fulfils and reassures us that our existence takes place as a continuity of history and culture. The type of intervention that inspires me the most is the one that succeeds in making old and new into one. This is not about making an imitation of the old, but it should on the one hand be constantly aware that you are building in another time, and on the other hand it must not shy away from intervening in the old. In most cases a crucial element that makes this possible is local knowledge."

Northern Architecture curated by Saunders Architecture

”I grew up in natural settings and feel most comfortable working in such landscapes. The wildness, freedom, and self-imposed restraints offers me a chance to challenge myself and my architecture. In all our projects we strive to achieve a clear and adventurous idea.” Todd Saunders, Founder Saunders Architecture

Setting the Trend at imm cologne

In interior design this is the time for subtle movements and authenticity - it can be observed in the materials, the story of the process and again in the details. We don’t want 
imm Cologne, which is running this week from the 13th of January to the 19th in Cologne, to be just the first trade fair in the calendar. We want to surprise and inspire the visitors - and that’s every time the hardest part of the curators work.

Below Zero Architecture by bof architekten

Imagine being cut off nine months of the year from the outside world during the Antarctic winter. A breakdown of the heating system can endanger the lives of those in the station. Life in sub-zero atmospheres depends heavily on the clever engineering of extreme cold weather stations. This collection highlights some of these clever engineering solutions and shows the many challenges architects have to deal with:
