Andreas Bründler and Daniel Buchner founded Buchner Bründler in 1997 after having studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Basel. Context and space play a central role in their work, which has been awarded numerous prizes. Recent awards include the Swiss Art Award and Concrete Award 13. They teach at the EPF Lausanne and the ETH Zurich.

Under the title "Constellations – Correlations", the lecture traces the interaction between projects of different scales and complexity using specific topics from their work. The majority of their works are engaged with the city and society and lead to differentiated designs. In addition, small projects hold a special position within their oeuvre.

Their small projects are concentrated artifacts of architectural thinking and action. Seen in this way, the clarity of their task shifts priorities as external complexity makes room for inner profundity.This approach leads their questioning: how are conceptual approaches found and tested, how do they mature, when do they develop into new architectural forms? 

This remote lecture and discussion is free and accessible to the public.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
