State of Ruin
A Reversed Archeology
-
2013
-

“...The ruin appears to be autonomous, autistic and mute. Simultaneously closed for engagement and, as a result, open for speculation and interpretation. A paradox. A myth. The present heap of crumbling material is waiting, no, it is asking us to decipher it, although this, most likely, is a futile endeavour. The ruin remains silent, but you urge, beg it to speak. Still mute. No answer. Only the wind. A non-riddle perceived as a riddle. A psychological labyrinth...”

Archival Praxis
-
2012 - 2011
-

by Magnus Nilsson
-

Archival Praxis is a proposition for a method of praxis in which the archive of architectural information is put to work in a productive manner. By archival information is meant the accumulative thought and production elements (i.e. information) derived through various architectural processes and these being the constituent parts of an applied projective design methodology (i.e. praxis).

-

by nOffice (Miessen Pflugfelder Nilsson)
-

In the course of nOffice’s one-year existence we have completed several projects in different countries, on different continents and of varying scales. The common denominator for all these projects is that they were completed under difficult conditions: no money, little time for design and construction, ever-changing design briefs and no possibility for site inspection...

Berlin Dictionary
in: Building Berlin
-
2009
-

by Markus Miessen and Magnus Nilsson
-

In his novel Manhattan Transfer John Dos Passos described New York as a “city of scrambled alphabets” in response to the ethnic multitude of that city. Berlin can also be described as such, not in terms of its biological make-up, but in terms of its dry inert matter: through its historical being, emergence, destruction, separation and finally redefinition, Berlin’s fabric is a veritable encyclopedia of urban knowledge - an unfinished and open-ended dictionary.
