On the basis of their own implemented projects, hammeskrause architekten take up socially relevant topics in this book, such as socio-cultural changes and their effects on architecture or building in existing contexts. In addition to the functional viewpoint of the architects, this approach is intended to arouse the reader’s curiosity and allow him to think outside the box. In a clear structure of chapters, a wealth of narrative strands is assigned to three activities: setting out, participating, thinking ahead. The semantics of these verbs and the interpretation of their basic meanings provide the guidelines for the individual project presentations. In addition to classical architectural media such as photographs and sketches, the book shows different buildings in use instead of clean architecture.
