A flexible space for people and nature
“The idea of buildings as static objects is a widespread self-delusion of architects who ignore that their buildings are always exposed to changes, e.g. when they are modified by the users or are altered by aging processes and nature. The willingness to accept those partly uncontrollable influencing factors and to recognize them as aesthetic chances is needed. It is a precondition for an overall ecological and social sustainable architecture that allows changes and thereby stays adaptable.”
This project explores the tension between the human and natural aspects in an architectural design. To obtain a good balance between these two, it is necessary to think about it, not as the usual fight between humans who want to structure and nature that wants to overgrow, but to make sure there is a symbiosis, where both benefit from the other. With this way of thinking, both can flourish and adapt together with and next to each other.
