Focusing on European countries
As of this issue, each instalment of A10 examines the state of affairs in a different country with regard to the architectural climate, with special emphasis on the position of young architects. Over the last ten years, Denmark has seen a major surge in building production. Interestingly, this is largely due to young Danish firms. At the invitation of A10, the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) presents the new generation of Danish offices in the context of the Danish architectural climate that has developed in recent years.
Section informs about current trends and relationships in technology and materials. Beginning with this issue, in order to go deeper into the links between concept and result, innovation and use, and corporate and social identity, A10 will choose one project to be more thoroughly scrutinized. Kirsten Hannema reports on the new Library of Birmingham (UK) by Mecanoo.
Baugruppen in Berlin
Baugruppen are hot in Berlin. On billboards at many places in the city one can read how holes in the urban fabric are being filled with new residential blocks. Vincent Kompier takes us on a tour of these buildings of joint interest.
