Item description for Claus and Kaan Architects by Hans Ibeling, David Chipperfield & Andreas Deplazes...
The search for the extraordinary in the everyday lies at the heart of the architecture and thinking process of Claus and Kaan Architects. The objective of this quest is to break down the distinction between low practice and high theory, the rift between architecture that serves its immediate and essential purpose and architecture that overlooks the needs of its users and instead addresses architects and critics. This book includes three essays as well as extensive and fully illustrated documentation and descriptions of 50 projects. Along with being a comprehensive overview of the considerable volume of work realized by Claus and Kaan in the last decade, it will also serve as an instructional text, aimed at fellow architects and students, concerning the integration of architecture's dual roles as art and useful object.
"Behind the trim facades of studied solidity and restraint are intriguing projects which merit more attention than they attract." - Archis
