This lavish publication, offers the oeuvre of the architecture practice O&O Baukunst looked at from a ‘different’ perspective. It presents an impressive cross-section of interiors of buildings and projects ranging from the 1980s to the present day is shown, offering unsuspected and unfamiliar insights.
Office concepts, housing models and spaces for art and culture reveal, alongside their representative functions, a surprising individuality and diversity of design.
As the modern city and its architecture are becoming more homogeneous and more compact, it is only ‘inside that the possibility for differentiation, for polarisation and characterisation in the design begins. This is where individuality can first be fulfilled’, says Laurids Ortner.
At the same time the show of work in this publication spans a temporal connection between the conceptual development of the design and the will for constant creative change.
