ARCHETYPES

In his solo exhibition at the Patrick Mikhail Gallery in Montréal, David K. Ross presents large-format architectural models. Ross’ photographs are the result of four years of research and exclusive access to construction sites around the world. All pictures were taken in the dark using flash. David K. Ross also captured this mock-up on the construction site of our student residence in Basel. The Type-C print is on display in the exhibition, which lasts from 28.8. - 19.10.2019.

„HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM”

Our project Ersatzneubau Lacheren is one of 150 projects submitted for the call “Houston, we have a problem”. The compilation of projects shows substantial contributions which, beyond the conventional solutions using thermal insulation composite systems, help to put “Spaceship Earth” on track in times of climate change. The projects are on display at the DAZ until 7 July.

1st prize in Hamburg

We are happy about the 1st prize in the competition for the new housing development at the Lichtenauerweg in Hamburg.

With a versatile sequence of outdoor spaces, our design creates a varied quarter for the new residents.
