Bjarke Ingels And Julien De Smedt

Bjarke Ingels and Julien De Smedt founded the firm Plot in 2001. They discuss projects that are often associated with one of the two partners but stem from this partnership. These projects reflect a continuum of ideas, often with a clear lineage from one project to the next, addressing urban environmental concerns of connecting people with their surrounding landscape.

Gunther Domenig Structures That Fit My Nature

March 31, 2005 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by: ,

Gunther Domenig talks about two projects he has worked on: repurposing the Nazi Congress Hall in Nuremberg into a documentation center, and the ongoing design of his house in Steindorf Austria. In the documentation center in Nuremberg, Domenig penetrated the fragmented existing structure with a spear that serves as a main circulation shaft. Domenig’s “Steinhaus” is a house that emulates the mountains and stone of its landscape. He considers the house his life’s work and uses concrete, steel and glass to produce an explosion of shapes and spaces.
