best architecture thought:

September 10, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

“The projects we are doing are almost all working buildings – quite pragmatic and straightforward. And I think we see the necessity of making them work, giving them the right size and the right sequence of rooms, so that everything functions well. But at the same time we are aiming to give them a presence which goes beyond the purely functional. And that is a juxtaposition which we find interesting. To put it provocatively, it is more challenging, in my view, to make a beautiful, articulate and sensual police station, than it is to make an art gallery of that description.” (Matthias Sauerbruch of sauerbruch hutton, WYSIWYG, p.14)
