Already in 2016 the DAZ (Centre of German Architecture) opened its »Neue Standards« exhibition. Within 10 lectures, architects and urbanists discussing various issues of current architectural landscapes and the persistence of fair living conditions and possibilities for different living cultures. Furthermore, they are developing their unique visions for the future of housing. They take a stand for a shift in perspective and a living focused on essentials, featuring adaptable spatial structures.
These new solutions embark from quantitatively oriented standard specifications of living and open room for thought.
How can housing stay affordable? How can the people take part in developing their city? What are the possibilities of urban density?To continue with their concept a second exhibition took place in 2021 to discuss new perspectives and upcoming strategies for the sustainable use of materials and encourage the audience to look at already existing architecture and its possibilities in the urban context.
On both occasions, we developed the printed media for the exhibitions in 2016 and 2021, as well as the associated catalogues which were published by the Jovis Verlag. The layout is forceful and graceful at once. Texts behave as dynamically as their content: they please the eye through extraordinary typeset that do not forfeit in readability.
