Franken Architects: GLASHAUS_06 Exhibition at the DAZ

Posted on 25. October 2011 by kristienring

»Brand X« Corporate Architecture – translating corporate identity into designed space – has become an increasingly important working field for architects.  GLASHAUS_06 presents Franken Architekten (Frankfurt/Main), experts at tailored architectural solutions. With the exhibition »Brand X«, the awardwinning office visualizes their design process.

Franken Architekten was founded by Bernhard Franken (*1965) in 2002. Corporate Architecture – »brandscaping« – is the main focus of the young office. »Brandscapes provide a spatial context for the entrepreneurial vision of the client – visible, tangible, palpable to all the senses. They are never just functional, but rather communicate and transport messages effectively and intuitively«, formulates Franken Architekten in their mission statement. Franken stands for spectular spatial sculptures and narrative designs. GLASHAUS_06 focuses on three projects: their work for BMW, the design of the flagship store Homecouture as sub-brand for Raab Karcher and the Munich-based microrant Cosmogrill.
