how we would like to live.
one room filled with furniture, originating from the same family but at the same time all different, just like dogs.

another room divided up by plants of all sizes to create a patchwork of inbetweens, to read, to water and harvest, to rest.

one room like a passepartout framing mountains. to boulder, to feel solid and heavy.

So it is time to get out of the bear cave again. Winter has gone.

I have started to work part-time at the HSLU Luzern as assistant for the Masters course in Architecture. So far it has been exciting, challenging and fun.

Part time also means space to breath. And draw and make plans and fail. But more on that later.

Check the next issue of hochparterre. Palle Petersen wrote an article reflecting on the "Was geht, und wo?" symposium that happened back in December. The introduction sounds promising!

And attached two drawings done to try out my new pens, crossbreeds between plans and sections, inspired by the genre of so called "Zimmerbilder".

münchen - was geht, und wo? 

Der BDA lädt zum von Florian Fischer und Peter Scheller organisiertem Symposium "Was geht, und wo?" an der Münchner TU. Ich wurde eingeladen, bin aufgeregt und freue mich ungemein. Dabei sein lohnt sich auf alle Fälle!

bregenz - kunsthaus - ai weiwei 
Last rainy sunday we took shelter in Peter Zumthors Kunsthaus Bregenz to look at an exhibition called "Ai Weiwei - Art - Architecture". There was not as much Ai WeiWei as one would expect. Two floors considered architectural work done in collaboration with the artist. I just couldnt figure out which part he played in the design processes.

Interesting nevertheless. Study models of Herzog de Meurons national stadium in Beijing, two designs of Swiss HHF. Most interesting a project called "Five houses": a series of houses based on sequential units. Various modes of shifting create completely different interiour situations and modes of use.

Second floor, a huge model covering almost all floor area: the future village of Ordos (the link doesnt work right now, probably considered a thread and censored by the considerate peoples republic). An architectural gangbang, but somehow more acceptable by the use of a uniform material.

The highlight definitely being the third floor and finally a piece of Ai Weiwei himself, called: "Moon Chests". A good space for beautifully crafted objects.
