"JSWD - hautnah" in Hamburg, Germany

Exhibition at AIT AIT ArchitekturSalon Hamburg

The portfolio of JSWD Architekten of Cologne reveals a wide range of diverse construction projects. Many projects have resulted from successful participation in competitions.  We take pleasure in supporting construction projects from very large to very small. The projects vary in magnitude, focus and client. It is nevertheless a common thread that runs through most of the already completed projects and those now underway: particular attention to the exterior, which is meant to be not merely a special attention getter for the onlooker, but should also tell the story of the structure and its owner. In addition to the ties to the locale, which are considered important, the focus is above all on building utilization and the philosophy of the client. The façades move the interior outward, but relate to the environment equally. The “skin” of a building by JSWD is not fashionable. Rather it strives toward civil engineering quality and design sustainability. The inherent design quality, resulting from the combination of conceptual clarity and the conservative use of formal means, has frequently found favor in the rest of Europe. Increasingly the firm JSWD Architekten has undertaken planning and execution of projects beyond Germany. With the display of schematic views of sectional building shells the current exhibit portrays important JSWD Architekten projects spanning the entire spectrum - in other words, JSWD close up!
