As part of the TYPOLOGY TALKS series Daniel Niggli and Mathias Müller of EM2N will hold a lecture about the topic of „Prototypologies“, followed by a short discussion panel.
The event will be held in English.
EM2N aims to produce architecture that is powerful and personal, architecture with the capability of developing its own character. As a result our projects may polarize the public, which is fine with us. One may love or hate our architecture, but one should never be left indifferent.
As post-idealistic children of the 1968-generation, we do not recognise a single great truth, but find in the fractures of reality a ground in which to anchor architecture. This is the radicalism that we derived from Venturi’s ‘both-and’ principle. But both-and should not be mistaken as being arbitrary or indecisive. Behind and within it lies the problematic recognition of equitable values, and a longing for an architecture that renounces all dogma, opening itself to the freedom of possibility.
