ARCH+ features 30
30 October 14
Monadnock considers architecture as a "discipline". The name of the office refers to the Monadnock Building (1893) in Chicago, and stands for its disciplinary claim – the presentation and perception of architecture's history and contemporary moment. In their
eyes, disputing conventions and historical examples has the power to liberate from the pressure to "invent". The search for continuity and the creative relation to previous knowledge is central to their work.
Job Floris, co-founder of Monadnock, hold a presentation about the work of his office, followed by a conversation with Wilfried Kuehn, principal of the Berlin based architecture office Kuehn Malvezzi.
