Olaf Grawert plans, writes and talks about architecture. He is interested in the political and economic conditions of spatial production. He works collaboratively between Berlin and Zurich, in a close network of people and institutions, developing architectural projects between theory and practice: from campaigns, exhibitions, publications and films to teaching and buildings.
2038 is an international team of architects, artists, ecologists, economists, politicians, scientists and writers. 2038 is also the German Pavilion at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale: a retrospective, telling us the (hi)story that today we call our future. In different films and media we learn how we arrived in 2038, when everything just went well again. In an age of New Serenity.
b+ is a collaborative architecture practice, looking into new issues and fields, trying to understand architecture systemically and beyond the built object. b+ wants to change the conditions of production in which architecture is thought and realized. In concrete terms we are asking: What are the challenges for architecture in a changing society and how can we as architects produce both ecologically and economically sustainable answers to these challenges?
