The Art of the Right Distance

Architectural criticism mirrored in the work of the architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners

Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Architectural criticism has never kept things as simple as that. As with any good criticism, it is less the critic's final evaluation or judgment of taste that is of interest, but rather his well-founded justification.

The Tianjin Grand Theater in China

The Tianjin Grand Theater in China

A new culture park has been created in recent years in the Chinese harbor city of Tianjin. The Tianjin Grand Theater occupies a key position on this site, entering into a dialog with its architectural surroundings. The circular form of the roof construction relates to that of the Natural History Museum there in such a way that it creates a connection between the earthbound museum and the seemingly floating theater building.

The Berlin State Ballet School

The Berlin State Ballet School

The Berlin State Ballet School is unique in Germany, because it combines a general school education with professional training. For the restructuring of the school and the new building, a design was required that takes into account the flow of movement between the dance school and the school, as well as the dynamic movement of dancing itself.
