A public lecture by the Zurich based practice Lütjens Padmanabhan Architekten, hosted by Studio 6 at The Cass School of architecture.
Date: 22 January 2014
Houses and Housing
The recent work of Lütjens Padmanabhan Architects focuses on housing in the residential districts surrounding the cities of Zurich, Basel and Munich. Despite their love for a more refined, urban architecture, Oliver Lütjens and Thomas Padmanabhan have light-heartedly embraced the fact that most of their commissions are set in the mundane anonymity of suburbia.
Their interest in complex architectural expression has distanced the practice from the craft-oriented mainstream of Swiss architecture. The current projects explore the impossible task of reconciling the autonomy of the exterior facade with the typological uncertainty of interior spaces and loose urban contexts.
