poster for "Diener & Diener" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The exhibition Diener & Diener is a presentation of the work and the architectural approach of a Basel-based group of architects. In their design, the relationship between the buildings and the urban space emerges as a rich variety of facets. Unlike other urban-planning strategies that define the surrounding town as a backdrop in front of which the project is developed, their designs relate and stage the existing and the new parts. From the very beginning, the project is planned as part of a new and larger whole. The exhibition will explain their design process by presenting their works and the methodology in the context of urban townscape.

「建ち方」や周辺との調和ばかりをスタディしたような、1/1000程度の木製模型が20ほど。ハンドブックを頼りに理解を強いられる展示。デザインを見せるというよりは、窓からの風景を強調したような2m角程度の大きな写真。配置計画やディテールが印象的でCGなどのビジュアル面が少ないポートフォリオ。映像ブースのヘッドホンは3台しかなくとっても不便。インタビュー映像では、自らの建築を匿名的と言っていた。最後にはサンプルを並べた実務的な一角。とてもストイックな建築展だ。
