VISION UND AKTION
Christoph Hesse Architects
12.08.2021 – 31.01.2022
Architecture can contribute to a just, humane and sustainable future. Social imbalance and the dramatic climate crisis are main points of attack that need to be redesigned in a strategic process. With natural and recycled materials and alternative energy concepts, solutions must be found that balance the built, natural and social environment while reducing the use of new resources. Users must be actively involved in the design process, with the goal of encouraging people’s ownership to create the right places for the community. With the exhibition “VISION AND ACTION” Christoph Hesse Architects present two parallel lines, based on several projects, which illustrate this approach. All projects have a strong connection to the place where they are built and catalyze more attention to regional-rural space. They highlight the importance of both approaching the building process sustainably by using recycled materials and utilizing and transforming existing structures. At the same time, they point to the future of architecture by pursuing sustainably oriented energy solutions.
