“Items of clothing. How textiles influence the work of Hild und K”
Matthias Haber of Hild und K Architekten
Matthias Haber is a partner at the architectural firm Hild und K (Munich/ Berlin). Among the projects he will discuss under the heading “Items of clothing” is the Wohnhaus in Aggstall residential project, with its crochet-inspired façade. He will also present other projects the architects have worked on, such as the Forschungsinstitut B.F.T.S. (B.F.T.S. Research Institute), the plaster façade of which is decorated with a tartan pattern, and the concrete and aluminum prefabricated parts that make up the “woven” façade of the Agfa high-rise. One recent example of a façade that is like a piece of clothing is the Büro- und Wohnhaus Schwabinger Tor (Schwabinger Tor office and residential building), which has just been completed.
“Observing materials, inventing details, composing architecture”
Javier Villar Ruiz of Kengo Kuma and Associates
An intuitive choice of materials and an eye for detail lie behind many of the projects by Kengo Kuma and Associates. An in-depth understanding of the material used plays an important role here. This results in architecture that follows a desire to shape, based on a logic inherent to the material.
“The Third Space”
Katrin Jacobs, Henn Architekten
For 65 years Henn Architekten has been planning spaces of possibility that foster innovation through communication and create moments that forge identities. For them, the work has long been about far more than just homogeneous landscapes, but rather heterogeneous spaces that form flowing points of reference and intersections and support communication as well as cooperation.

“Space – Identity”
As a partner and senior figure at “einszu33”, Georg Thiersch has spent more than ten years pursuing the development of identity within his project work. His conclusion? “Beauty alone” is no longer enough. His presentation revolves around the question of the premises under which a design concept develops, which factors are important and which are perceived as generally applicable trends. Essentially it’s not just about design, but about communication – in the form of brand architecture, employer branding, but also through the process of personal experience and the question of how the context of materials, structures and colors shapes our perception.
Joachim Stumpp of Raumprobe
“Architektur.Textil – All-rounder Textiles”
Technical textiles push boundaries, whether it’s as reinforcement in new types of concrete or as modern construction material in the form of carbon. Following on from the “materialSchau Architektur.Textil” at Architect@Work, the fascinating diversity of new materials and the possibilities for textile architecture associated with this are presented by means of exhibits.
