Building Across Worlds (announced as Processes - Correlations)
(50 items available)
Over the past 50 years, the architectural office of Gerkan, Marg und Partner has realised 400 projects worldwide -- from single-family homes to cultural edifices and office buildings, from transport facilities to master plans. Many of the buildings were constructed in Asia, where the practice negotiated how to build in the cultural environment and on the proper scale for each country, and explored what knowledge can be transferred from construction work in Europe to other environments.Various principles, conditions and times determine the context in which GMP operates. The extract included herein from the GMP portfolio draws parallels between current domestic and international projects, while supplemental references to earlier buildings offer a look back at the office's development.
