WESTARCH

20-09-2011

To accompany the exhibition of the same name the Ludwigforum published a book with profiles and projects of the participating design offices as well as essays by the organisers. WESTARCH searched for a possible coherent style (or state of mind) in young architecture offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. "Responding to the rise in digital communication, more young architects are working in teams, with such technological advances as video chat facilitating cooperation across countries. Tracing these international networks, the book discusses the conditions of production shaping the next generation of European architects."
Besides ZUS the book features other offices like 2012 Architects, Modulorbeat, Powerhouse Company, Next Architects, LAB(AU), DUS Architects and Office Kersten Geers David van Severen.
