FRIZZ23 in ERA21

The recent issue #04 of the Czech Republic architecture magazine http://www.era21.cz/ is concentrating on contemporary dense urban typology - mixed use structures - with shops, offices, living and ideally a multifunctional hall for entertainment. As a reference they show the mixed used buildings from early 20th century in central Europe, where vertical mixed used structures were very typical. They are focussing on buildings in the typical European height range of 6 to 10 floors.

Frizz23 provides exactly the mix, the magazin was looking for, even their ideal idea of a multifunctional hall for entertainment is provided by the non profit school Forum Berufsbildung e.V.

The article also describes the unique dialogical process of developing architectural and urban planning goals for the project together with representatives of the neighbourhood and of the Berlin senat and the district in several workshops.

We feel honoured that Frizz23 is included in this important theme publication!

16.05.2013 Bauwelt 16|2013: Innovatives Verfahren um die Blumengroßmarkthalle? Stephan Becker pp. 27-29

What a nice surprise – our project FRIZZ23 is on the cover of Bauwelt!

In a three page article Stephan Becker describes the processes behind the re-development of the Blumengroßmarkt, an industrial site in Kreuzberg on the border to Mitte. Three sites are currently being sold by the government to innovative porjects which won a year and a half long tender process based not only on the price, but also on the best concept.

The three innovative development models are described within the context of the site, and Berlin's changing land sales policy. The Blumengroßmarkt is one of the last unwritten sites in the center of Berlin, and could serve as a model for future urban development policy in Berlin.

01.10.2008 Hatch - the new architectural generation Kieran Long Ed. pp. 76-77

"Hatch showcases 114 architects who will define the physical fabric of our cities for the next 30 years, as well as the theoretical and interpretive background of architectural practice worldwide. These are practitioners for whom the old categories do not hold, and for whom modernism is no longer the orthodoxy. As the role of architects in cities changes, young practitioners pursue a range of work as writers, critics, curators, teachers, fashion designers, computer programmers, club promoters, materials experts, engineers, installation artists, developers and builders. Critically selected, the work of each architect, writer and photographer in Hatch is examined in detail to uncover the approaches that will come to their full fruition in the coming years and decades. The 800 photographs and drawings of projects give more than just eye candy. With this book you can decide for yourself how good these young stars really are."

Kieran Long is an architecture critic at the Evening Standard, and author of New London Interiors (2004) and co-author of Architects Today (2004).
