HUNECK, Karsten & Bernd TRUEMPLER
Osa – Office for Subversive Architecture: Transgressive Strategies
Date: Tuesday 7 May 2013
Venue: New Soft Room
Hosted by Diploma Unit 2
Osa – Office for subversive architecture originated in 1995 as part of a student project and grew as a collective of practitioners with similar ideas on architecture and public space. The studio’s consistent aim has been to develop what its members call ‘untraditional approaches’ of reinterpreting architecture in the city. The network’s eight partners are currently based in five different cities and three different countries in Europe. Osa’s projects cross the boundaries between art and architecture, varying from minimal or movable installations, to the construction of actual buildings and urban or spatial strategies.
Since 2001 Karsten Huneck and Bernd Truempler have run the UK-based branch in London while creating spatial works with local and international significance. Karsten and Bernd have been Associate Professors at the ESA, Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture in Paris since 2008.
