Description

‘Ecke, edge, angle’ are basic elements of geometry. As spatial metaphors they find their way into our thought and language. To view it from a different angle is a request to change perspective. Superiority can be expressed as having the edge over somebody. Cutting corners is finding a smarter way to proceed. In daily language usage neutral spatial terms have an emotional connotation.

On drawing paper and in space, corners, edges and angles are formed when bodies, surfaces or lines intersect. In architecture this allows us to crystallize a spatial idea being dividing and including at the same time. How can corners, edges and angles be constructed? Which meaning do they include? How do buildings, squares, and streets come together? How can intersections be handled?

Connections are both the problem and the opportunity: ‘The doric corner conflict’ or ‘Mies’ corner’ are just two illustrations for the potential of the three-dimensional complexity of a system. The ending and corners of buildings are always a special case in a linear organized architecture.
