The movable house is complete. Now the trial phase begins.

After some four months of production and one month spent on assembly the trial phase of the movable house can finally begin. The residential home by Rahbaran Hürzeler Architects is a prototype that – as implied by its name - has not been developed with a specific site in mind, but should rather be "movable".

The Törten Project

Murder and Crime Mysteries from a Bauhaus Estate

DOM publishers

Twenty students at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, under the guidance of Professor Natascha Meuser, developed ideas for crime stories to shed new light on the workers’ estate designed by Walter Gropius in Törten between 1926 and 1928. This small volume takes the reader behind the chaste white facades. It presents quirky narratives about mysterious entanglements, morbid secrets, and grisly intrigues, describing – almost incidentally – the buildings and their details.

Timber has reclaimed its place in the urban environment. This oldest of mankind's building materials is not only perfectly suited for conversions, extensions and infill projects, but also for the construction of multistorey buildings all the way up to skyscrapers. This has only become possible through ongoing and intensive research and development in timber construction which over the past couple of years has led to a range of hybrid solutions.

30:70. Architecture as a Balancing Act

DOM publishers

Never before have so many buildings been constructed as today, and never has architecture had so many technological and design possibilities at its disposal. And we must, as ever, make our built environments as pleasant as possible. After all, they affect our health, well-being, and productivity. Yet there is a sense of unease permeating the present state of contemporary architecture.
