new European architecture

Rather than reporting on the latest doings of the all-too-familiar big names that crop up in all the architecture journals, A10 casts its net more widely to take in the many other interesting things that are happening in the old continent, devoting equal attention to the architectural production in Western, Central and Eastern Europe. With clear and informative reporting, A10 presents new buildings and projects by tomorrow's stars, forgotten masters and as yet unknown talents.
A10 is compiled and published by architecture critic Hans Ibelings and graphic designer Arjan Groot. It has a network of over 70 correspondents throughout Europe, from Ireland to Turkey and from Portugal to Russia. Thanks to this pan-European network, A10 is often the first to take notice of a new project or building.

feld72: Space for possibilities
The feld72 team does not like to be circumscribed by the classic definition of a professional architect. They work in both art and architecture, taking on small and large commissions as well as temporary projects. Anne Catherine Fleith, Michael Obrist and Mario Paintner explain why the dialogue with other parties and the participatory approach are important tools for them and what role strategic thinking plays in this process.

Light interventions
When it comes to the conscious use of light in architecture, it is possible to distinguish two extremes. On the one hand there is the kind of lighting that supports and enhances the architectural space. This is the case, for example, where the illumination corresponds with the construction, or where routes through a building are accentuated with light lines. On the other hand there are many projects where the application of light tells a different story, produces a contrast.

Buildings from the margins of modern history
The house that Giuseppe Perugini built for himself in Fregene, outside Rome, is the crystallization of his experiments with an architecture that combines kinematic elements, using rotating structures and suspended prefabricated modules. According to Giampiero Sanguigni it reflects 'the desire to realize a potentially infinite architecture'.

Versatile wood
Wood is the most discussed material in contemporary architecture. Such is the conclusion suggested by a simple Google search. It turns out that, in English, the combination of 'architecture' and 'wood' yields as many results as the combination of architecture with each of the other three common building materials – steel, glass and concrete – put together. A similar ratio also exists in French and German. But the most talked about material is not necessarily the most used.

Sculptural glass
Glass in architecture. It started out as decoration. The first application of glass in buildings, in the centuries before the Christian era, consisted of cast 'lumps' of glass. Even medieval stained glass had little to do with the values of transparency and boundlessness that the material has come to represent in the modern era. For a long while after that glass was used primarily to fill window openings. Nowadays, however, technology has moved on to such an extent that you can not only construct entire facades of glass, but also roofs, floors and stairs. Glass has evolved into a fully fledged building material.

Organic facades
There was a time when building was self-evidently organic. Huts and houses, although made by human hands, sprang as it were from nature. Depending on the continent and your precise location, you would have seen, as an integral part of the landscape, mud huts with roofs of plaited reeds, shelters assembled from blocks of stone or volcanic rock, all-wood dwellings or igloos. In protecting themselves against the elements, human beings emulated nature in what they built, in both materials and form.

Malleable metal
Although metal made its entry into architecture at the end of the 19th century – in imposing station roofs, in the Eiffel Tower, in Art Nouveau ironwork stairs and balconies – we continue to associate steel and aluminium first and foremost with the rational modernism of the 20th century. The skyscrapers of Mies van der Rohe, the furniture and prefab facade panels of Jean Prouvé, the high-tech architecture of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers… However, during the past ten years or so, that quasi-industrial character has ceased to be axiomatic. More and more, architects are discovering (or rediscovering) the craft-like qualities of metal.

Sustainable solutions
 Sustainability: for years now it has been a 'hot item' in architecture. But as interest in sustainability grew, so too did the hype and scepticism surrounding the topic. What does green actually mean? About one thing there now seems to be agreement: not building is more environmentally friendly than new-build. The waste in terms of energy and materials that is inherent in the replacement of existing buildings by new ones can never be offset by any CO2-free, state‑of‑the‑art project, whatsoever.

Light & mood
Although lighting is primarily a functional element of architecture and urban design – it renders spaces visible – light plays an equally important role in the aesthetic quality of buildings and cities. In a way, light could be regarded as architectural 'make-up'. With judiciously positioned lamps, spotlights, up- and downlights, architects are able to flatter spaces or reveal materials in all their rawness, accentuate certain elements, and add depth, direction and colour.

Emil Urbel: Assembling puzzles
Having entered the Estonian architectural scene with an array of winning competitions entries in the late 1980s, early '90s, Emil Urbel set the standards in the mid-1990s with a host of white minimalist private houses that prompted a stream of imitators. Minimalist in appearance, thoroughly worked out plans, uncompromising quality, clarity of thought: Urbel is almost a brand in Estonian architecture, to a degree that his elegant works are virtually taken for granted.

Modified wood
During the last ten or so years, wood has made a spectacular comeback as a preferred construction material – because it is sustainable (despite ongoing disputes about the precise meaning of this term); because it can be treated in many different ways; because of the 'warm' ambience it evokes; and, above all, because of its 'natural' image. Yet by no means is all of that ubiquitous 'natural' wood in fact a 100% natural product; increasingly, architects and builders are opting for modified wood.

Dietmar Feichtinger: From A to B
The Simone de Beauvoir Bridge in Paris is a prestige project. But nowadays Dietmar Feichtinger is keen to direct media attention away from it and onto his other work. Yet in conversation he nonetheless starts talking about that very work. When all's said and done, it sums up the structural and site-responsive approach inherent to his architecture, whether it be a bridge or a buılding.

Brick's back
Brick and ceramic are among the oldest materials in architecture, along with stone, wood and clay. The oldest bricks ever found – in the Middle East, where Iraq lies today – are as much as 10,000 years old. As such, brick stands for tradition in architecture. A long tradition of big and imposing buildings – the ancient stupas in Asia, the magnificent tiled city walls of Babylon (the Ishtar Gate, on display in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin), churches in Europe – as well as perfectly ordinary houses. That antithesis is typical of brick – on its own it is nothing special, but applied on a large scale, brick is an exceptionally impressive and rich material. As Mies van der Rohe said: 'Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.'

Smart textiles
Most people, when they think about textiles and interiors, think first and foremost of furnishings – curtains, carpets, rugs and furniture coverings. Fabrics that introduce colour into a space give it texture and create a specific atmosphere. That is the traditional view of textiles. But nowadays one can do so much more with woven materials than simply 'clothe' a room. A glance at the newest generation of textile products and projects reveals two interesting trends. On the one hand we see the development of new 'smart' fabrics that combine decorative characteristics with acoustic, sun protection and light-giving properties. On the other hand there is renewed interest in weaving techniques, in particular three-dimensional structures, that make clever use of those new (non-biological) materials.
