Urban and rural contexts: a dialogue

Michaela Wolf and Gerd Bergmeister

bergmeisterwolf, Brixen

Event from
18 January



The uniqueness of each intervention is the result of deliberate, careful work in search of a balance between the built environment and the landscape:
bergmeisterwolf rediscovers old building traditions, combines them with new materials and experiments with them. bergmeisterwolf recognises and extends the existing structures, but also introduces elements of discontinuity, recovers the forms of the site and extends them with a new dialectic, builds them under the existing morphology and transforms the forms of the landscape.
