Conceptual contextualism
Architecture interlinks the human being, the space, technology and philosophy. detailed information of the location in its context is gathered, usage patterns are analyzed and new application technologies are researched to develop the contextual concept. Our architectural pursuit lies within the superposition of complexities. we generate buildings by means of programmatic reinterpretation, topographic continuity, urban context and differentiated spatial sequences.
