Interviews: Fretton, Kolatan, Bründler, Lim, Schmidt
Peter Staub (Ed.)
Since 2009, the architecture program at the University of Liechtenstein has invited a select group of international architects to engage in conversations about their practices and attitudes in the 21st century. These discussions have resulted in Positions 5, a compilation of interviews with the following five architects; Sulan Kolatan (KolMac Ltd, New York), Tony Fretton (London), Andreas Bründler (Buchner Bründler Architekten, Basel); CJ Lim (Studio 8, London) and André Schmidt (ex OMA, Beijing). Topics vary from CJ Lim, Andreas Bründler and André Schmidt offering insights into the challenges that European architectural offices are confronted with when working abroad, especially in Asia, to Tony Fretton and Sulan Kolatan discussing the important role of craftsmanship in architecture today. An informative look into the reality of practicing architects working in today’s challenging global culture.
