GANZ GUT. Quite Good Houses

“Quite good”—an everyday comment turns into a challenge: can architecture be “quite good”? Oda Pälmke’s collection of photos takes a careful look at seemingly ordinary houses that we would usually pass without a second glance. By means of unconventional focusing and calculated comparison, these quite everyday structures reveal their qualities and charms to the reader. Some appear quirky and scarred by life, while others appear bold and impudent, and still others call for a closer look before disclosing their subtle structures. In this compilation, each of the buildings portrayed represents a magical possibility and asserts itself as a single facet of a whole. All of them are “quite good” in the best sense of the words. The book is not a training manual; it introduces us to a cabinet of curiosities, providing guidance on tolerant, positive viewing.
