Anna Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal will sit down for a discussion with Georg Vrachliotis on the occasion of the Frei Otto retrospective he curated at the ZKMin Karlruhe. They will discuss the conceptual proximity between Lacaton & Vassal’s work and the eco-houses that Frei Otto designed for the IBA Berlin. Both cases represent a vision of architecture as open structure, in which the resident’s space for creative freedom stands paramount rather than the creative will of the architects.
