Lecture - “Ambiguous Architecture & Inhabitable Structures”. Together with Alexander Fthenakis we will discuss our respective approach to teaching at the TU München and the Royal College of Art in London. We share a similar interest in ‘Universal Buildings’ - Architecture that is less defined by a pre-determined function, but rather with a potential to be appropriated for different uses and desires over time. The faculty of architecture at TU München Monday 31.05.21.
Lecture – 'A bedroom is a room with a bed’ – a sentence, written by George Perec, that is close to our hearts. Departing from this idea, Chris and Max will give a lecture at Syracuse University in London about the building and its guests.
Publication – 'Camping in a High-Rise' MA architecture course at the Royal College of Art. Together with our students we explored the contrast between the mass and permanence of buildings and the temporary, light-weight and ad-hoc notion of camping. For more joy, please explore our students' work at the RCA Virtual Show or you can order the publication from us. email@example.com
Publication – Our research into Virtual Reality as a tool for the design of Villa Ruba is forming part of the book and exhibition ‘The Architecture Machine’. Architekturmuseum der TUM. Book launch at Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, October 14, 2020.
Once a Virtual Reality model, now reality. The villa is on site, expected completion end of 2021.
Lecture - We will give a lecture at Bergen Architecture School on the 5th of May. The focus will be on our collaboration with Antoine Espinasseau who has photographed our projects for over ten years now. Antoine recently put together a small book that we will base this lecture around, hopefully the pictures can help to reflect on the desires and intentions that has driven our practice.
