New Publication – Porsche Magazine 03 / 2017

How will we live in the coming decades? Three central trends have emerged for urban living. Christophorus makes a house call to the future—and takes a car to the fifty-sixth floor to do so.

The desire of most people to live in cities and the ongoing lifestyle revolution driven by digitization will play a major role in shaping how we live in the future. Urbanity and technical innovation, however, can have very different influences on the way people live and define their immediate living spaces. Three trends in how we live stand out: luxury cocooning, green living, and smart homes.

New work for Bugatti – Chiron in “Bleu Royal” carbon fibre

The Chiron is the most modern interpretation of Bugatti’s brand DNA and embodies the new design language. The styling accentuates the performance aspect of the super sports car. In order to achieve a 25 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor, almost every single part of the engine was looked at and newly developed. This feat of engineering resulted in the W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron being able to develop an unbelievable 1,103 kW (1,500 bps) from its 8 litres of displacement. The engine reaches its maximum torque of 1,600 Nm thanks to the turbocharger which Bugatti actually even developed itself.

BAM in Berlin Exhibition at Circle Culture Gallery

Raw Desires: Brutalism & Violent Structures – currently on view at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin through November 5th 2016.

BAM participates in this exhibition with two major works about the fascinating architecture built by Louis Kahn. All photographs of the Salk Institute were created in 2010 / La Jolla – San Diego CA.

Artists: Frank Thiel, Michael Wesely, Andreas Gehrke, Jan Kempenaers, Benjamin Antony Monn, Christoph Morlinghaus, Thomas Kellner, Fette Sans, Karin Székessy, Dirk-Michael Schulz.

“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.
