Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch, of Berlin-based practice Sauerbruch Hutton, have recently published Archive 2 – a second series of monographic volumes dedicated to the work of their practice between 2006 and 2015. In the nine years between two sets of books, the architects have observed that "the expansion of the digital realm has had a profound effect on the way we perceive, discuss and produce architecture." As such, and on the occasion of their second volume, they are inviting people to share their thoughts "on the convergence of architecture in concrete, pixel and print."
Sauerbruch Hutton are challenging readers with three provocations, to which a number of people have responded.
- How does the digital dissemination of something as physical as architecture affect your thinking ?
- The inherent slowness of building and the speed of the internet – how could these be reconcilable ?
- Is the architectural monograph a concept of the past ?
