Günther Domenig: Structures that fit my nature (March 31, 2005)02:03:16

Günther Domenig talks about two projects he has worked on: repurposing the Nazi Congress Hall in Nuremberg into a documentation center, and the ongoing design of his house in Steindorf Austria. In the documentation center in Nuremberg, Domenig penetrated the fragmented existing structure with a spear that serves as a main circulation shaft. Domenig’s “Steinhaus” is a house that emulates the mountains and stone of its landscape. He considers the house his life’s work and uses concrete, steel and glass to produce an explosion of shapes and spaces.
