Unfinished Houses 未完的建築

The world of tomorrow - reflections of Florian Kaiser and Guobin Shen

Architects usually try to create finished houses, i.e. coherent works of art for eternity. But does this claim stand up to reality? Should that even be the claim? Finally, it cannot be ruled out that the structure will change after completion.
Inspired by references from the history of construction, art and anthropology, the young Atelier Kaiser Shen developed various theses at the beginning of its practice and tested them on the basis of its own projects. The central question is how buildings change during their lifetime due to external influences and what this change means for the idea of space.
