| Monograph embracing all of the facets of the Berlin-based office’s attitude toward architecture and its design practice
Superferenz is the first monograph on Eike Becker_Architekten from Berlin. The office operates at the intersection of architecture and urban planning in the constantly changing environment of high-speed societies. Featuring twenty-eight comprehensively documented projects and objects, arranged in chronological order, this publication provides insight into the architects’ ideas and work, as well as their methodology and belief in architecture as the expression of and precondition for a society undergoing remarkable transformation. Office, apartment, hotel, and museum buildings and urban planning are vividly explained with the help of sketchbooks, paintings, collages, models, technical drawings, animation, photos, and texts. Nearly five hundred pages provide a survey of the original, internal processes behind the production of architecture.
