Riepl Riepl Architekten: Sites (German and English Edition)

By Peter Riepl, Gabriele Riepl

Die anspruchsvollen Aufgaben von "Riepl Riepl Architekten" reichen vom öffentlichen Bau über Kultur-, Industrie- und Wohnbauten bis hin zu Kirchen. Das Hauptanliegen von Peter Riepl und Gabriele Riepl besteht darin, Raum zu modifizieren, differenzieren und Orte neu zu konditionieren. Nur sekundär wollen sie neuartige Konstrukte schaffen. "Raum" ist für sie mehr als der geschlossene Raum; er kann unbegrenzt, weitläufig und offen sein. Großformatige Bilder stellen hier eine Auswahl ausgezeichneter Bauten vor. Sie sind um Plan, textual content und Projektübersicht ergänzt. Friedrich Achleitner charakterisiert in seinem Essay das Werk der Architekten.

That's, at the least, extra attention-grabbing than candy romanticism. Your first immense venture, the reconstruction of Schloss Hagenberg, concerned a really particular, highly-detailed dealing with of the substance and its background, which labored out the addressed complexity of the site in response to an elaborate proposal. Gabriele Riepl: including our companion again then, Thomas Moser, we tried to shake out coherent fragments from the ancient thicket with the intention to supply them extra air sooner or later. Latent typologies and preparations have been therefore made recognisable. In reference to present extensions, we completed a unique and simple architectural construction. This required a cautious observance and research of the construction and a excessive degree of self-discipline within the processing of the minimize surfaces and edges. This venture was once accomplished among 1986 and 1989. You as soon as pointed out that post-modernism was once a really advanced time period that used to be usually used too curtly. Did this discourse lead you to a specific gateway to the location; used to be it a kick off point to your later paintings? Peter Riepl: advanced as the time period is used with out sufficient program and arbitrarily in equivalent degree in architectural discourse. ‘Architectural post-modernism‘ used to be at the least simply the preferred tip of alternative philosophical hobbies that have been entwined. For us one other vital root in the back of it used to be the structuralism of the sixties and seventies and exceptionally the robust, topological technique which introduced the positioning into play as a posh truth, as practised, for instance, by means of Aldo Rossi and Tendenza of Switzerland. issues that seemed trivial and nameless grew to become sizeable and purchased weight. What us right here was once that there have been without notice various varied contexts, that every thing used to be visible as even more non-compulsory and hence extra promising and no more trouble-free. during this recognize, this feeling of post-modernism is a cultural asset. 24 You labored at Innsbruck collage with the architects Helmut Reitter, Georg Pendl, Rainer Köberl, Reinhardt Honold and your destiny associate Thomas Moser in a drawing studio within the seventies. What continues to be of this time? Peter Riepl: The shared workrooms have been marked through a hugely committed and highbrow surroundings, which used to be borne by way of a powerful ‘élan vital‘. Impulses of one other variety, yet of a good influence at the improvement of our principles got here from Othmar Barth, who have been appointed to the college at the moment. the present and the ancient have been negotiated anew. there has been a rediscovery of town, attached with the need to attract totally upon social realities. clearly this happened through the years.
