The ten offices presented share a common tendency: the distance to sculptural, massive building and the trend towards disembodied, scaffold- and membrane-like spatial definition. Throughout, these are not architectures of “strong images”, they are rather strong, sensual aggregates in the service of qualities that leave the representable behind. Architecture is not something that fills up space more or less spectacularly, it is what coordinates space in the first place.
