Lacaton & Vassal
Future Architects for Future Arts
Architecture is about freedom, generosity, pleasure - far beyond any aesthetic and formal determination, beyond the rules, standards and programs, say architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal. The Paris-based architecture firm, that received the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 2021, is taking on the general renovation of Kampnagel, which is scheduled to begin in 2025. On the occasion of Kampnagel’s anniversary they are invited to talk about their philosophy which is based on the objective of inventing beyond standards in order to design an architecture that is pleasant, efficient, affordable for everyone and sustainable for the future.
