Be Baumschlager Eberle rencontre Christian Hauvette

Past: July 9 → 27, 2013

Fluid space

The team of be baumschlager eberle has continued the work of Christian Hauvette’s agency since 2012. The verb « to continue » has been carefully chosen, as it reveals the architectural proximity between Christian Hauvette and the work of be baumschlager eberle. As Christian Hauvette, be baumschlager eberle seeks architecture as a medium that requires responsibility — in the present, as well as in the future.

Architecture deals with consistency and with authenticity. Architecture optimises peoples’ living environment. It constitutes a framework that also contains the moment of change. This change can be interpreted in the technical, as well as in the spatial sense, because the rooms created by be baumschlager eberle and Christian Hauvette are flowing spaces, accentuating transitions and barriers.

They emanate from the always terrific game of relations between objects.

The relevance of architecture

be paris represents an architecture matched initially to the performance of real needs. Practically, this means designing buildings which optimize living environments by generating identity for locations. In addition, be paris aims to define architecture as an aspect of art: architecture which institutes space for cultural positioning of the medium, and personal visions through abstraction of practical values. The relevance of this unique architecture comes from critical reflection concerning existing human coherences, social acceptance and the framing of answers through dimensions in time. Finding solutions for both present and future requirements is the prime focus of be baumschlager eberle.
