YES for Binningen

On Sunday, 25th September 2022, the population of Binningen voted with clear majority to approve the budget of 48 Million CHF for the extension and renovation of the „Schulcampus Dorf“, including a re-design of the public outdoor spaces, to revalue this location in the historic core of Binningen as a public village center.

After 2 years of being on hold, we are very excited to continue working on our project in collaboration with Hörner Architekten, scheduled for completion in 2026.

Guest Critic at the Karlsruhe Institute for Technologie

On 04 August 2022 Christian Weyell will be a guest critic at the KIT, Institute of Design, Art and Theory EKUT with visiting professor Madelaine Kessler. The jury itself will take place at 97 Kaiserstrasse, and will run from 10.30-17.30.

Filling the Void: the death and life of the great European high street, explores the future of the high street through performance-led design. The studio look at the opportunity to test and re-imagine our town and city centres so that they can become places for everyone, whilst also questioning the role of the architect as someone who is both a designer and facilitator of events and conversations that can bring communities and stakeholders together to understand what a place can become.”

“By creating a central Federal Institute for Photography, the competences for restoration, archiving, conservation and digitisation of old photographs, which have so far been decentralised but diverse, are to be bundled in one place. The task is to design a centre of excellence for the preservation of Germany’s photographic and visual heritage.”

Christian Weyell is a guest critic at the final reviews in the studio of Ursula Hürzeler and Shadi Rahbaran at the FHNW in Muttenz, on Wednesday, 12th January 2022.

“An indoor swimming pool for Kleinbasel: The implementation of a new use in the form of an indoor swimming pool in an existing spatial structure should thus create places of liveability and a common identity for the Basel population. Concepts that create overlaps between different uses have proven to be viable. Thus, not only a swimming hall should be designed, but also a concept of use should be developed for the building as a whole with which it is associated.”

Kai Zipse is a guest critic at the final reviews in the studio of Kawahara Krause at the University of Kassel, on Wednesday, 14th July 2021.

“Architektur bedarf einer stringenten Logik und kann dennoch Unschärfe zulassen. Flux Order will in der Vereinigung des scheinbar Gegensätzlichen das Ungewisse als Potential begreifen. „Architecture as Cave“ beschreibt Architektur, deren räumliches Potential die individuelle Aneignung erfordert. Dem gegenüber steht die „Architecture as Nest“, in der die räumliche Situation durch die Architektur konstruiert ist. Im Spannungsfeld dieser Dualität soll im Entwurf eine Struktur gefunden werden, die den Spielraum der Möglichkeiten zwischen definiert und aneignungsfähig auslotet und somit das Potential des Wandels zum Ausdruck bringt.”

“This studio is founded on the belief that an understanding of how things are made brings an intimate engagement with the problems and possibilities of the real world. We are interested in the material life of buildings, how we process the fabric of our environments to construct spaces. From local resources to global trade; vernacular methods and new technology and auxiliary industrial processes -we will consciously appraise our materials.”

Weyell Zipse is part of the publication “image [im-ij] \ ˈim-ij \” by Archaic Studio.

“A design and communication tool, the image remains a decisive and crucial step in the definition of any project, whether it materializes through its construction or persists under the form of paper architecture.

With Image, Anja Dotter invites us to feel the pulse of a young guard of European architects by questioning them about their relationship to images.

Through a series of interviews with emerging architects, photographers and image makers, Image highlights and confronts different approaches to the architectural image in a world where it circulates, travels and is shared more than ever!”
