Temporal layers

Since its start in 2000, KOKO architects has evolved on the tides of developments in Estonia, employing an intriguing combination of graphics and modest servitude, and literally building an identity for a new nation with new sense of self-esteem. It garnered them the Young Estonian Architect Award 2015, but it didn't make them overconfident. 'We believe in layers of time, and not so much in permanence.'

Focusing on European countries and regions

When Estonia regained its independence in 1991, commissioners and architects were ready to remake their nation. The results have developed from hard-core commercialism and privatization in the ’90s and a demand for high-quality public buildings and transformation projects in the ’00s, to the point where Estonia finds itself today. An open competition system now directs young and established architects alike to rethink the quality of public space. But the Baltic state is a small nation and competition is harsh, forcing every architect to maintain a sharp focus and aim for the unexpected.

Paint it brick

It has taken almost a quarter of a century to become a reality, but the Gdańsk Shakespearean Theatre is now finally open to the public. Located next to the remnants of the city's 14th-century walls, the exterior contains some of the Gothic elements that dominate the style of Gdańsk's Old Town. At the same time, Venetian architect Renato Rizzi introduces a new kind of hue in the city fabric – a very dark and monotone anthracite brick. Maciej Czarnecki reports on the realization of the building that some locals liken to a treasure chest: sturdy and heavy on the outside, refined and polished inside.

Glaswegian resurgence

Over the last 30 years, Glasgow has been involved in a process of renewal and regeneration following the failure of long-established manufacturing industries, which left behind hundreds of acres of derelict ground, severe unemployment, and civic dignity and resources sorely stretched. The last ten years of this process have seen architecture's role take a number of different forms.

Buildings from the margins of modern history

Catholic sculptor Josef Rikus professed his interest in abstract concrete architecture in his only building: the remarkable Church of St Johannes XXIII, completed at the Cologne University campus in 1968. The sculptor had worked on small projects for various churches, such as altars and church decorations, before being assigned to design the church by the Catholic theologian Wilhelm Nyssen. In 1964, Nyssen initiated the construction of modern dormitories which, from the outset, centred around a small church. In collaboration with sculptor Rikus and architect Heinz Buchmann, he came up with an architecturally and philosophically innovative sacral building.
