Sturm + Wartzeck: GLASHAUS_05 Exhibition at the DAZ

Posted on 25. October 2011 by kristienring

Sturm+Wartzeck, the young office of architects Susanne Wartzeck (1966) and Jörg Sturm (1966), present their work under the title »Archetype and Experiment« at GLASHAUS_05.

An extraordinary aesthetic clarity and original, often minimalist yet effective solutions distinguish the works of Sturm+Wartzeck. The office does not only focus on »classical« architectural projects: Their designs for furniture and accessories have won numerous awards, e.g. the red dot Design Award. They also engage in research projects on experimental building methods in the area of housing.  »Archetype and Experiment«, also stands for the working approach of the office. In their architecture and designs, Sturm+Wartzeck do not strive for the spectacular, but focus on the essential. They question so-called standards and develop clear, functional and, at the same time, sensual designs. At GLASHAUS_05 six projects are presented: from design objects, such as a candle holder and a table, to experimental housing projects and buildings, such as the awarded house Hasenhof and the extension of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kunststation, Kleinsassen.
