10/2 - Rough
Simon Frommenwiler & Simon Hartmann
HHF Architects, Basel
Simon Frommenwiler and Simon Hartmann, two thirds of the partnership comprising the office HHF Architects, discuss new projects in Europe, Mexico and the United States, their recent collaborative work with Ai Wei Wei and the current state of Swiss architecture.
Princeton University School of Architecture's fall 2013 lecture series presents a series of lectures and public debates about the aesthetics of the Rarefied: what is the architecture that grows in a resource-depleted environment? Rarefied aims to capture an environment, an atmosphere of asphyxia which surrounds a practice driven by the lack of financial credit and natural resources. Which are the practices and the aesthetics that will succeed these decades of excess, and the architecture that results from them?
The Rarefied sessions are set in a round-table format where speakers join Princeton SoA faculty members and selected graduate students in a studio-like environment. The lectures are streamed online for the general public. Every session will be focused on a particular modality of the Rarefied.
