„Man is the measure of all things.“

Protagoras

 

 

If there are no reliable constants and truths, if the individual is the point of all reference, scale, and orientation, how can architecture, with its traditional penchant for endurance and practicality, best serve man?

 

 

The truly sizeable task of designing cities today’s societies should consider humanisation in addition to function for longevity. Short-term requirements such as investor equity or the fulfillment of immediate requirements are not strong signifiers of progressive work.

 

 

Art and philosophy place man at the center of thought and action, providing a base foundation of valuable information regarding the changing nature of human life. The city of Freiburg is celebrating its 900th anniversary next year – we ask a question of the city: what will it look like in the next 900 years? Whereas such a question may be unanswerable, asking it focuses a desired perspective – to invigorate the imagination to visualise the future of the city, and, above all, to see it as a place with human beings at its center.

 

 

Marc Auge, a French anthropologist wrote: Place is characterized by three core factors: identity, personal relationships, and history. What about today, and what should it look like? We want to talk about it.
