Breakfast Lectures with Alexander Römer (ConstructLab)
ConstructLab is the description of a collaborative construction practice working on both ephemeral and permanent projects. Unlike the conventional architectural process in which the architect designs and the builder builds, in constructLab, the project’s conception and construction are brought together. The designer builds and continues to design on site. The idea behind constructLab’s practice is also to rediscover a constructive intelligence in materials themselves, to design at the same time as we handle the material. In foreground are low-tech and simplicity. It is not about technical prowess, but rather finding a common sense approach whose building techniques can be appropriated and used by everyone.
