As part of our event series VISIONENZUSAMMENBAUEN, we want to share with you this documentary which stands as a demonstration of intelligence and sensibility of the Ecuadorian architect firm Al Borde.
As we strongly believe that “doing a lot with a little” is the motto to follow for the buildings of the future, we want to invite you to a zoom screening, followed by a discussion. We are really excited to show you this film and hope you will be eager to share your impressions with us afterwards.
“Al borde is a project led by four architects. They try to be consistent in approaching architecture in the most human way possible with minimal resources, not as an excuse for their scarcity, but as an aesthetic and political resource in itself, placed on the border between art and architecture. They develop a kind of “intimate discussion of place” and as a work ethics, propose a design that originates from the “common intelligence”. Through various projects they generate dynamics of social interchange where people design from their own collective consciousness. Al Borde is a forceful project that continuously questions the idea of an architecture ruled by discipline and driven by capital.” – Pablo Ramírez, Curator, Guatemala
