Awareness and respect for people, sites, history and the mutability of our world, light and landscape, weather and gardens are the foundation of our creative work.
Everything built is only taking part in it. Like to step into the Open, for to partake in the infinite play of light with nature and landscape, so Dietrich | Untertrifaller open their buildings to expose its surfaces and materials like canvases to the light. This awareness is the basis of every design. Only if the right tone is found in the context of the site, only if views and landscape are acknowledged, only if light and material have found their full fruition, function, structure and creative orderare condensed to a continuous and self-evident logic.

The exhibition explores architectural spaces in the most comprehensive way via the path of perception. In a critical reception, it investigates the oeuvre of the architects about a new aesthetic and the phenomenon of atmosphere.
