Item description for Bürgin Nissen und Wentzlaff Architekten/Architects by Edi Bürgin...
"Which style should we choose for our plans?" Today, a definitive answer to this question can no longer be given: the architect has to find new solutions each time. The work of the Basel architectural office Burgin Nissen Wentzlaff is characterized by a search for an unbiased approach to architecture that incorporates sources from completely different fields of interest to which the first monograph of Burgin Nissen Wentzlaff owes its unusual concept to this statement by the three architects. Whereas the buildings and projects of the past twelve years are precisely documented on the right pages in the book, the left pages with texts, illustrations, pictures and the infringing questions demonstrate the tasks and challenges characteristic for the work of the office. The frictions and contradictions between these 'two sides' of the practice are not oppressed or censored but are consciously unfolded. The resultant book oscillates between idea and building, reality and concept, offering a stimulating insight into the workshop of this unique architectural office.
