Architecture Baumschlager Eberle | From a Knowledge of Place

The architecture of be baumschlager eberle is concerned with the specifics of place – a quality that is also evident in the practice structure. The presence of the 10 offices in Lustenau, Vaduz, Vienna, St. Gallen, Zurich, Hong Kong, Berlin, Hanoi, Paris and Hamburg forms the basis for both an understanding of each cultural context and a close regard for the specific needs of the client. At the same time the knowledge from each place is constantly updated and refined so that it can be applied at any moment to the other locations of be baumschlager eberle. The office uses the possibilities of globalisation, tuning this newly gained resource to each individual project. The reflection on the existing leads to the development of a set of rules for external spaces and buildings. However this is not about fixating on “unique” volumes and images, but rather about creating elements that interact and complement each other. In this sense it has more to do with knowledge and less to do with intuition. The result is comprehensible solutions that prove their worth in the social and cultural context of their place of origin.

The exhibition presents seven selected projects. They vary in scale, function, location and material and show the whole spectrum of the practice, which reaches from the masterplan in Sheshan (China) to the villa in Los Angeles. The client and users hold a special significance for the development of each project, which is also reflected in the exhibition concept.
