“Raw Desires: Brutalism & Violent Structures” is less an architectural review on brutalism than an attempt to translate a specific feeling, one that captivates so many in our society. The various works here are challenging in their questions. They focus on realities, psychologize urban structures, redefine the given, recontextualize nature and eroticize roughness.

Take a first look at my new, handmade portfolios for 2014. The slipcase includes three different projects I’ve been working on for several years. The Endor Project, the Candela Project and A-Symmetrie. Each book can be extended with a few simple steps.
Thanks again to Robert Reittinger for doing an excellent job! I really appreciate your work.
