> Formalhaut

For 30 years Formalhaut designed land­scape and pub­lic spaces. Their works are archi­tec­tural and experimental. Years ago Formalhaut showed cows in trans­par­ent boxes in a pad­dock and in front of Frankfurt’s sky­line we built a group of silos as houses for sin­gles cit­ing a game of chess. These projects pre-empted the cre­ation of the sem­i­nal  liv­ing room project. With liv­ing room in the medieval town of Gelnhausen we sur­pass bor­ders. Its walls do not func­tion as enclo­sure, more like a mem­brane for an ‘urban osmo­sis’, sug­gest­ing a swap of pub­lic for pri­vate, thus mix­ing the house with the town. It offers more than just a cheek­ily stuck out tongue, with its drawer extended into the pub­lic realm, while Thomas Kling’s poem on the façade states “…the house is the mouth cave…”We work on the non-functional space and chal­lenge its enig­matic char­ac­ter by ques­tion­ing: can the phys­i­cal bor­der of space be beau­ti­ful itself or is the expanse of the void the rea­son for beauty? This hair­split­ting ques­tion leads to dis­till space from ‘space-border’ and vice versa. In the tent pic­tures the inside/outside is con­fused by fold­ing, in the sculp­tures three dimen­sional house-size ves­sels have super-thin soft walls , in the pho­to­graph­i­cal light works we show space of no mass…

> Plan:B Arquitectos

Plan:b is an architectural office that defines its work through a practice in which equal status is given to dialogue, drawing, travel, model making, construction, etc. and which continuously handles professional or academic situations, publication of books, college classes or construction of buildings. Plan: b trust in working collaboratively, making of it a statement of architecture and understands the practice and the architectural project as open situations, provisional agreements, phenomena not imposed and embedded in eco-social networks both local and worldwide.

> Rocco Design Architects

Rocco Design Architects is a Chinese architectural practice based in Hong Kong. Working in a region with disparate cultural and physical landscapes, and where values from diverging times and places converge, Rocco Design’s work is grounded in the belief that architecture is the embodiment of culture – embracing and reinterpreting the past, as well as addressing modernity – and the requirements of contemporary living. Rocco Design’s works are marked by their sensitivity and sensibility. While always eager to explore and innovate, they are nonetheless aware that architecture, rather than just an art, is ultimately the art of problem-solving.
