Autarkytecture

"Every building is a prediction 
and every prediction is wrong."
(Stewart Brand – " How buildings learn")

Instead of trying to anticipate the perfect building for a specific moment in time, the Autarkytecture project proposes flexible constructions that can adapt over time. A built environment that is no longer the product of radical architectural theory, but rather builds further on preceding architectural practices. Exploring successful patterns of the past in order to translate them into guiding design principles for the future.
This research is about shifting our attention from the timely towards the timeless, from how buildings look towards how they feel.. 
It’s an attempt to integrate time within design and aspires the possibility of a built environment that can change, ages gracefully and just feels right.
