The modern Paradox: Specific Neutrality
Architects are more and more confronted with a modern paradoxical: buildings have to be specific, unique and special. Architecture is used as “branding”, as an easily understandable iconography, by which one wants to make a difference on all levels: privately, in the neighborhood, as a city, region, even as a whole country.
At the same time programatic changes happen more often and faster, linked towards the dynamics of economy. For this, architecture has to be as neutral, able to be resold, reusable and as flexible as possible, no matter if it is housing, offices or public buildings.
The relationship between neutral and specific has to be redefined from this point of view. Since its existence Atelier Kempe Thill works on a series of prototypes for different tasks which especially this relationship defines anew. Parallel with this are studies exhibited about specific construction methods and materialization.
